Nike is teaming up with designer Jun Takahasi to bring you the Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Spring 2014 Collection. Based on the notion that running is a battle between two opposite emotions, the collection articulates this dichotomy with contrasting colors and materials.
Equipped with the latest performance running innovations, the collection’s apparel employs Nike’s Sweat map ventilation technology. This weave pattern optically and tactically expresses the upper body’s heat map, while the perforations provide aeration at the points where body temperature is the highest and likely to rise with exercise. Sweat Map ventilation on the base layers and jacket are also designed to perfectly align, maximizing performance benefits.
Takahashi’s inspiration is further fulfilled with yin-yang color blocking on the Nike Lunar Speed AXL. The sneaker’s dual-tone 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 will be available on March 1.
