Nike and Jun Takahashi, founder of UNDERCOVER and one of Japanese streetwear's founding fathers, reunite to deliver the Spring 2016 NikeLab x Undercover Gyakusou collection. "For over half a decade, Takahashi has comfortably worn three hats - that of a runner, designer and Nike collaborator. Takahashi is a real runner. I'll sit down and ask him how he‘s been running, what has changed, what‘s working and what‘s not. I'm able to get insight that could only come from him because he has an insane eye for design and is a passionate runner," says NikeLab Senior Design Director Jarrett Reynolds.
For Spring 2016, NikeLab Gyakusou developed pieces with data-informed placement of water resistant materials. The lightweight and delicate materials feature efficient storage to allow easy access while on your run. The collection is finished off with the Nike Lab Gyakusou LunarEpic Flyknit - a mid-height collar for a locked-down fit and a contoured Lunarlon midsole with articulated laser cuts for a smooth transition from heel to toe.
Run over to your nearest NikeLab store on March 10 to shop the collection.
