Angelo Baque’s AWAKE NY label has been lining up new and exciting footwear collaboration all year long. So, it comes as no surprise that AWAKE would eventually link up with Vans, their debut capsule collection featuring the Sk8-Hi releasing next week. 

Angelo Baque’s AWAKE NY label has exploded in the streetwear scene over the last two years, thanks in part to their foray into footwear. As a former member of the Supreme family, Baque is undoubtedly familiar with the process behind collaborations, likely using this knowledge to his advantage when teaming up with brands under the AWAKE name. By now, the brand has worked with both Asics and Reebok on a number of high-profile projects, but this week, the New York label unveiled their latest team-up, this time hitting up Vans to work on three exclusive colorways of the Sk8-Hi. Cast in high-contrast, eye-catching looks and modeled by Westside Gunn in the campaign imagery, the AWAKE NY x Vans Sk8-Hi comes in Blue/Red/Neon Green, Green/Blue/Red, and Black/Red/Teal, each of which will release from both AWAKE and select retailers. 


The debut project between Angelo Baque’s AWAKE NY and Vans, featuring the Sk8-Hi, has been scheduled to release globally later this month, starting at Greenhouse on October 20th followed by Footlocker on October 22nd. All three colorways, each in eye-catching tones, come with a price tag of $90. Check out the campaign imagery below for a better look at all three colors, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Vans release news.
