Nike Running and Research Lab team up with Jun Takahashi for an innovative new take on running and athletic gear for their holiday collection “Undercover Gyakusou”. Takahashi is a rare designer and has a running crew named “GIRA”. The collection features plenty of Takahashi’s Tokyo-influence and the fusion of extreme functionality and style with items such as the Mesh Thermo Vest and a 4-Way Stretch ½ Zip Hoody Top.
We’re most impressed by the collection’s standout item: Men’s Utility Long Tights – “An unprecedented combination of running shorts and running tights, they eliminate the bulk of two layers without compromising functionality or comfort. A looser fit on top incorporates pockets for the aforementioned essentials and recalls classic sport shorts, while the integrated full-leg coverage of tights provides necessary warmth”. (NikeInc.)
Kudos to Jon Takahashi and NikeLab for always pushing the limit. The Nike x Undercover Gyakusou holiday collection drops on October 23rd at NikeLab stores and online. Peep the full collection below.
