For the past years we have been delightfully treated on some masterpieces from the Gyakusou running collections designed by Jun Takahashi. For coming Spring and Summer things are no different. His vision of running being a battle between opposite emotions will once again be embodied in a stunning collection of shoes and apparel with constrasting yin-yang articulations.
Working closely with Nike’s Apparel Innovation Design Team, Takahashi is exposed to the latest advanced technologies informed by body-led research. The collection will consist of the latest performance running innovations, including Nike Sweat Map ventilation, to give runners an edge against adversity. Sweat Map ventilation on the base layers and jacket are also designed to perfectly align, maximizing performance benefits.
The collections footwear further expresses Takahashi’s inspiration with yin-yang color blocking on either side of the Lunar Speed AXL. The sneaker’s dual-tone, lightweight, breathable mesh uppers are texturized by tonal python embossed leather, while the midsoles feature soft, yet responsive Lunarlon cushioning.
The Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Spring 2014 Collection launches globally on March, 1.
