Awake NY x Jordan Air Ship Release

Awake NY and Jordan Brand‘s collaborative Air Ship colorways are finally emerging from sneaker purgatory. Set to grace Nike SNKRS and select retailers this spring with a price tag of $150 USD, the “University Red” version takes center stage after keeping sneakerheads on edge for over eight months. Let’s dissect the deets – co-branding, leather build, and a touch of snakeskin texture. Brace yourselves, the “Royal Blue” iteration is next in line for its spotlight.

Awake NY and Jordan Brand decided to pop the cork on their 2023 partnership with a vibrant twist on the Air Ship. The grand reveal occurred at the opening fiesta for Awake NY’s flagship spot in the Lower East Side, NYC. The shoe casually dangled from the ceiling, an understated flex for those in the know.

While the exact inspiration is still hiding behind the curtain, the mismatched color symphony steals the show. Imagine red snakeskin jazzing up the right foot while blue takes the left, all dancing with silver Swooshes, white leather uppers, and a dash of “aging” on midsoles and outsoles. The pièce de résistance? Awake NY’s “A” logo, nonchalantly stitched on the lateral forefoot.
