Pair Jun Takashi’s creative wit and Nike’s innovative React Element 87 and you’ve got a winning formula as far as sneakerheads are concerned. While this isn’t the first time Jun Takashi is collaborating with Nike – the duo has a long-running line of performance gear known as Nike Gyakusou that also includes cult sneakers from time to time, the UNDERCOVER x Nike React Element 87 is truly unlike any other, one that’s guaranteed to sell out in no time at all. Here’s why.
Each pair features Nike’s innovative React foam technology, with a translucent upper and reflective 3M trail-running laces that’s cool and functional all at once. Finished with a branded UNDERCOVER Jun Takashi logo at the side, the best part would be the four gorgeous colour combinations that the sneakers come in.
Two of them come in bold and graphic hues like Lakeside/Night Maroon/Black/Electric Yellow and Volt/Black/White/University Red, while the darker ones will come in conventional shades like Green Mist/Summit White/Deep Burgundy/Linen and Light Beige Chalk/University Red/Black/Signal Blue.
Set to launch on 13 September 2018 with an indicative price of USD180, there’s no word on whether Singapore stores will be receiving pieces, so you’ve got to stay tuned for more information on that.
UPDATE: 12 September 2018
Really hate doing this, but because #caringisharing, DSM Singapore will be selling this puppies on Friday (14 September 2018), with each pair priced at SGD259 each. Go.
