Slowly receiving more and more collaborations within the footwear space, Awake NY further shows off their playful and colorful aesthetics through the lens of brands just barely outside of the mainstream. Starting this year strong with a pair of ASICS Kayano 5 360s, the imprint is now tapping Reebok’s signature Workout, bringing classic over-branding and some strong contrast tones to its usually simplistic upper. Smooth leathers are, for the most part, taken up with a soft off- whites with little to no full whites seeing their way across save for along the tongue tab. Bases of rough nubucks add contrast by way of barely slightly darker shades while the eye is drawn most to the sprawling of “AWAKE” emblazoned right atop the lateral’s logo window. Soles, which match the yellow of just one of the available laces, adds striking yellows with embossed branding at their usual spots at the rear. Grab a look at this small tease right here and expect to learn more about its official release as details surface.
