The Raised By Wolves x Saucony Aya ‘Asphalt Jungle’ is Rock Solid
Release: 25 January 2020

Canada’s Raised By Wolves are adding another sneaker collaboration to their solid vault. This time it’s with American neighbours Saucony, on the underrated Aya silhouette.

Inspired by the ‘Asphalt Jungle’ of urban Canada, the street-stalking theme is expressed with its grey palette. On the surface, it may just look like a flat grey upper, but it actually uses almost a dozen different materials. The multilayered construction lends itself to the mix of meshes and leather types for a deeply subtle execution.

As this is an exercise in subtlety, it might be easy to miss the zippered stash pocket hidden in the tongue – but perhaps that’s the point. Despite this hotly debated topic, RBW say it’s their tribute to skater Chad Muska’s shoes from the 90s.

Splashes of colour are inspired by the bright treatment given to hard rock Canadian maple, while reflective tabs and toggled lace options complete the premium build.
