#kixspotted Peak AW2


Peak AW2
I've spotted Andrew Wiggins' second signature shoe with Peak during may last trip to the mall. There are 2 colorways present there and I am here to show them to you as well as the tech specs for the AW2. Andrew Wiggins shoe line have been a success due to its features. The various brandings of Peak and AW like his logo have always been highlighted in his shoes by having large logos or some story-telling elements incorporated in the shoe itself. Made from a synthetic build for the upper, this midtop silhouette still feels lightweight and I am pretty sure it is going to be a supportive shoe thanks to the lacing reinforcements, large heel counter, lateral cage made of TPU and a carbon fiber plate underneath which Peak calls Foothold. Also underfoot is Peaks 2 different cushion source particularly the Peak TaiChi and the P-Ultra Light. The P-Ultra Light is said to be lighter than the traditional midsole foams while the TaiChi foam is known to have a very resilient property. I have tried the Peak TaiChi foam and I am pretty curious how this specific 2-foam setup from Peak would perform. Lastly, depending on the colorway that you choose, you will either get a solid rubber or translucent rubber outsole. The rubber on both colorways that I saw looks pretty hard enough so I think it is just a matter of preference. But to be on the safe side, I would suggest that solid rubber is the way to go if you are playing on outdoor courts most of the time. You can get these now at the Peak Store in SM North Edsa Department Store retailing for Php 7,995.
