Awake NY Splatter Paint on Their CrocsRelease: 27 May 2022
Crocs have become one of the most on-trend items of 2022 and the brand has engaged in a slew of collaborations with high profile individuals and brands to bolster their image. Jeff Staple and Salehe Bembury have been two heavy hitting link ups, each putting their own spin on Crocs’ iconic clog. Next up to the plate is Queens-based brand Awake NY led by Angelo Baque. For their second joint venture with Crocs, they’ve been inspired by artists, splashing paint over the uppers of the clog.
‘These Crocs are an ode to the artisans, craftspeople and makers,’ Baque said in a press release. ‘The design pays homage to my favourite pair of pants, which were custom-made by a very dear friend of mine. I’m in awe of those who work with their hands, especially in today’s times. That’s why I chose to highlight local artisans and spaces for the campaign.’
The second collection of Awake NY x Crocs feature in an epic campaign with a slew of artists from multiple disciplinaries wearing the clogs. Arriving in full-family sizing, they arrived via Awake’s channel’s yesterday on May 25. If you missed out you can cop your pair from Foot Locker on May 27!
