When Awake NY opened their NYC flagship on Orchard St. back in June, guests who attended the grand opening could see a pair of sneakers hanging from an overhead pipe. Some attendees snapped pics of this shoe and shared them online. This was how the Awake NY Air Ship was first revealed to the world.
Hung from the ceiling of the Awake NY flagship was two separate colorways of the Awake Air Ship, one in red and the other in blue. Both pairs feature a white leather upper with an embroidered A logo on the lateral of the toe cap and a metallic platinum Swoosh. The pops or red/blue are found on the snakeskin ankle collars, as well as on the trim of the Swooshes. Underfoot is a vintage-style yellowed midsole and a gum rubber outsole.
After months of anticipation, Awake NY is now gearing up to release its first Jordan collaboration to the public. The red colorway will hit the market first, accompanied by an apparel collection that was teased by Brand Director Hugo Mendoza during a recent SNKRS Live episode. The blue colorway is expected to drop in Fall 2024.
