News— Nike x Gyakusou
Nike and Jun Takahashi's UNDERCOVER Lab’s Gyakusou line first started in 2010 as a collaborative mission to marry functionality with Japanese aesthetics. The esteemed Japanese designer has an immense love for running and Nike Gyakusou came at a time when the performance wear boom was in its infancy.
Over the past decade, the collaborative duo have consistently released selections of sneakers and clothing lines, all building and furthering the successes of seasons prior. 2021 is no different, turning their attention to one of Nike's premium racing shoes, the ZoomX Vaporfly Next%. The lightweight racer comes to us in a predominantly bright red look, as well as a deep green and burgundy iteration. A Swoosh brands each shoe on the side, while Gyakusou branding announces the collaboration. The breathable mixed material upper of the Vaporfly is paired with Nike's innovative ZoomX foam, coming together to deliver a unique package that is primed for race day.
The latest collection is topped off matching apparel collection including a three-layer jacket, woven shorts, utility shorts and t-shirts for the men as well as a matching utility short and top for the women. All crafted from performance specific material channeling the latest Dri-FIT technology.
The full collection of apparel and footwear is now available online.
