Solebox x Asics Gel Lyte III

Apr 19, 2008 | Matt Halfhill |



A few months back we saw some preview shots of a collab between Solebox and Asics. Solebox is no rookie to collabs with memorable makeups with New Balance, Puma, and Nike. Now Asics can add another company to the list as well as possibly the honor of the most creative Asics Gel Lyte III collab yet.

The Solebox crew kept with the times employing a rich grey suede upper with purple accent, but took the kicks down a different path than anyone else by using UV sensitive material that change color in the light. Going the opposite direction of the Alife “Monster” Gel Lyte IIIs, the grey stripes on the side of the sneaker as well as midsole change to purple when catching rays.

Crooked Tongues brought the web these shots and info, but sadly no release date or pricing info has been released at this moment. In oddly related, but somewhat relevant news, Nike has sanctioned Solebox and is no longer doing any business with the reputable spot. Solebox dishes the dirt on their blog, but maybe someone caught feelings that Solebox was working too much with competitors?
