Angelo Baque‘s Awake NY has worked on collaborative footwear projects with everyone from Reebok to ASICS and Timberland, but now it’s presented its most unexpected shoe yet: an elevated take on Merrell‘s nostalgic 1TRL Jungle Moc. A slip-on style that’s sure to strike a chord with many a ’90s baby, the Jungle Moc stands in stark contrast to Merrell’s most popular current model — the futuristic Hydro Moc — making it an undeniably unique collaborative choice.

Uppers are constructed of a soft, stone-toned nubuck with a debossed Awake NY hit placed on the lateral side directly below the elastic throat. Midsoles and outsoles combine an airy sail shade with a medium gray tinge and a signature oval traction pattern. A finishing touch of detail is provided by rich pops of orange on the sizeable heel tabs and the midsole’s branded hit, a color placement somewhat reminiscent of adidasYEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “TRFRM.”

The Awake NY x Merrell 1TRL Jungle Moc is set to release via the Awake NY webstore and Dover Street Market on June 18.

For a flashback, take a look at Mike Cherman‘s appearance on HYPEBEAST‘s Sole Mates series, in which he reminisces on wearing Jungle Mocs to his friends’ bar mitzvahs as a kid.
