Brand: UNDERCOVER x Nike
Key Features: While we’re still awaiting concrete information, it looks like this new silhouette plays with texture in a big way, merging a suede and nylon upper with a foam sole and raised detailing on the heel.
Release Date: TBC
Editor’s Notes: After teaming up for the incredible React Element 87 silhouette, UNDERCOVER debuted another collaboration with Nike during its SS19 show at Paris Fashion Week. The shoe comes in two colorways: blue and black, and yellow, grey, and black. And as mentioned up top, it looks like we have a textural beauty to look forward to — the shoe appears to incorporate foam detailing and something almost like a car spoiler on the heel, giving it a distinct The Jetsons vibe.
Titled “The Warriors,” UNDERCOVER’s SS19 show took inspiration from the 1979 cult movie classic of the same name. Designer Jun Takahashi created tribes, specifically eight (distinctly well-dressed) gangs, all of which had their own iconography and cultural uniform. You can read our full breakdown of the show here.
Naturally, the shoes are already being hyped on Instagram, with the likes of Haven Shop co-founders Arthur and Daniel Chmielewski sharing close-ups:
