With impending troubles on the horizon between Solebox and Nike Germany, Solebox has returned to one of its greatest skills as collaborator extraordinaire. It seems more often then not every sneaker to come under their influence of the German sneaker shop has yielded smart and cohesive colorways, albeit with a strong affection to purple. Their latest collaboration with Asics on the Gel Lyte III features a purple/gray suede sneaker. However beyond a nice colorway is a color sensitive upper/midsole that turns purple in the sun. Two different styles were created, a special Solebox exclusive with the stores name featured on the heel and sole that will only be available through the Berlin retailer as well as a version devoid of Solebox symbolism that will be available at Asics’ finest dealers around the world. No word yet on a release date however by all accounts it should be arriving soon. Check Solebox for more details.
