ASICS collaborates with Hikmet Sugoer's Berlin-based footwear firm Solebox on the 'Blue Carpenter Bee' Gel-Lyte III style. The footwear is available in blue and black colorways inspired by the Blue Carpenter bee, and it was introduced in April 2016. The top of the shoe is made entirely of black nubuck, with the tongue made of electric blue suede. A grid design on the side pays respect to the bee's wings, among other characteristics. The sneaker has branding on the sides with Solebox writing and rests on top of a white midsole with a somewhat transparent outsole.
