Awake Joins ASICS’ Year Of Collaborations

The duo — who have connected on a number of occasions — present two takes of the GEL-NYC sneaker, a silhouette paying tribute to New York City that combines elements from ASICS’ GEL-Nimbus 3, GEL-MC Plus V, and GEL-Cumulus 16. After most recently connecting for takes on the GEL-LYTE III following multiple GEL-Kayanos and a GEL-Preleus back in 2020, Awake founder Angelo Baque now reconnects with the sneaker label for arguably their finest drop to date. Both GEL-NYCs arrive with an upper pleasingly split between mesh, leather, and suede which sits atop ASICS’ epochal GEL sole, Follow The Drop NYC For Updates.
