In an electrifying collaboration led by the one and only Angelo Baque, the immensely awaited Awake NY x Converse One Star has finally been confirmed by both influential parties. This mind-blowing fusion of basketball and skate culture has been a long time in the making, with early samples of the co-branded One Star already causing a seismic shift in the online sneaker universe back in 2018, only to mysteriously disappear shortly after. However, as Baque and his team continue their relentless pursuit of greatness, solidifying their empire through strategic partnerships with other titans of streetwear and establishing an undeniable physical presence in the beating heart of New York City, the unveiling of the Converse One Star by Awake NY now feels like a destiny finally realized.

Prepare to be captivated by each iteration of this reborn 1974 basketball legend, boasting an utterly luxurious suede upper. But wait, there’s more! The audacious “Awake NY” branding is boldly superimposed over the traditional Converse star logos on the lateral sidewall, grabbing your attention and refusing to let go. But they didn’t stop there. In a stroke of genius, the sockliners and license plates proudly display dual branding, solidifying the unbreakable bond between these two creative behemoths. The essence of coolness, the sole units remain a pristine white, effortlessly channeling the streetwear brand’s deep love for the raw and edgy aesthetic of 1990s downtown NYC.

Prepare your eyes for a feast unlike any other as you gaze upon the official photos of this trifecta of sheer sneaker glory. Brace yourselves, my fellow sneakerheads, for the Awake NY x Converse One Star collection will make its awe-inspiring debut exclusively on Awake NY’s website on the illustrious date of Friday, October 6th. But fear not, for the world will soon bask in the brilliance of this collaboration as it receives a global launch on converse.com on the esteemed date of October 12th.

And if that alone doesn’t satiate your insatiable sneaker cravings, do not fret dear souls, for there is more to come. Set your hearts aflutter and mark your calendars because the highly-anticipated Air Jordan 11 “Gratitude” is poised to grace this earthly realm in early December, bringing joy and wonder to the hearts of sneaker enthusiasts far and wide.
