UNDERCOVER x Nike GYAKUSOU Capsule Collection

Born from Nike and Jun Takahashi‘s distinctive running line GYAKUSOU, the capsule sees a range of functional pieces spanning pullover windbreakers, T-shirts, shorts, long-sleeves, and leggings, on top of the previously seen Pegasus 36 Trails, made from highly breathable fabrics. The windbreaker sees a lengthy three-quarter zip construction, surrounded by subtle perforations. “GYAKUSOU” branding is emblazoned at the left side of the zipper, while a motif of a red rose is placed on the right. Below, the words “GYAKUSOU WENT THE DISTANCE” can be seen through the jacket’s semi-translucent pocket. 
The same tagline is placed at the back of the hood, followed by a co-branded Swoosh and a large pouch below. Another noteworthy piece is a pair of vented shorts. “GIRA” appears just under the left side of the waist, complemented by further co-branding, contrasting side stripes, and two back pockets. Other pieces like the Pegasus 36 Trails, zip-up long-sleeves, T-shirts and leggings round up the lineup of technical running gear. Each piece comes in optional colors of either red or yellow. The UNDERCOVER x Nike GYAKUSOU Capsule is currently available at select retailers, from $82 – $153 USD.
