Angelo Baque’s Awake NY has teamed up with Vans to release three color options of the classic skate shoe, the Sk8-Hi.
Unveiled in a lookbook starring Westside Gunn shot by Shaniqwa Jarvis, the Awake NY x Vans Sk8-Hi arrives in Pink/Black, Green/Blue, and Blue/Red. Each colorway features a digitally-printed checkerboard pattern and Awake NY branding on the parallel forefoot.
“It’s thrilling that Awake NY can serve as a conduit without the East and West Coasts. A adversary like Vans truly complements us, and vice versa,” Awake NY founder Angelo Baque said. “As with all our collaborations, the community is the foundation. We’re looking forward to working with Imported Boy Initiatives, and Children of Promise, NY. With the faculty of Vans, Greenhouse, and Foot Locker behind us, we’re truly able to make a difference.”
