The brainchild of former Supreme brand director and multihyphanate creative Angelo Baque, popular brand Awake NY has revealed a duo of brand-new collaborative takes on the ASICS GEL-Kayano 5 360 after the recent release of their SS ’19 collection. Known for their recognizable script logo and bold colors, Baque’s brand has cooked up a duo of takes on the hybrid runner/lifestyle silhouette: one striking gold and black, and one more subtle grey and green, both drawing from his favorite cities. The former pair is inspired by nighttime in Paris and boasts a solid gold upper accented by black suede overlays and black GEL cushioning units. Meanwhile the latter takes from Corona Park in the designer’s hometown of Queens, and opts for soft grey tones boosted by mint green suede and a silver cushioning system. Alternate branding appears via a debossed logo on the lateral forefoot/printed logo on the medial heel collar, while each is completed by a healthy dose of high-vis reflective accents and flecked laces. The shoes will see a staggered release, arriving at pop-ups in France on June 20th, New York on June 22nd, and on the Awake webstore June 25th Get a detailed look right here, and for more Awake NY footwear, check out their unreleased Converse One Star collection from 2018.
