Editor’s Notes: Canada’s Raised by Wolves debuts its first-ever collaboration with Saucony Originals, presenting the “Asphalt Jungle” AYA. The AYA, which means to fly swiftly, was originally designed as a runner to chase personal records, before being discontinued in the 1990s. The performance silhouette was well known for its multiple lacing options offering a truly customized fit.
Now more than two decades later, Raised by Wolves draws from ’90s skateboarding for its collaboration on the AYA. As a nod to skater Chad Muska’s signature late ’90s footwear, the Raised by Wolves x Saucony AYA incorporates a concealed stash pocket in the tongue. The sneaker, which is showcased in a tonal grey colorway with a rainbow of color pops inspired by stained plies of hard rock Canadian maple, also boasts a reflective, embroidered heel tab and three lacing options with a matching cord lock.
You’ll be able to buy Raised by Wolves’ “Asphalt Jungle” AYA exclusively online on January 18 prior to a global release on January 25. Purchases through Raised by Wolves come with a dual pack of sneaker wipes courtesy of Sneaker LAB.
