When Nike’s never-before-seen React Element 87 model made its debut on the runway during Undercover’s fall ’18 show at Paris Fashion Week in March, it left many sneaker fans wanting more.
Now, after a handful of teasers, one of Nike’s most anticipated collaborations finally has a release date: Sept. 13.
For its latest partnership, the sportswear giant goes back into its running archives, drawing design elements from heritage sneakers like its Internationalist. It features a reflective and translucent upper, which sits atop Nike React foam, as well as signature branding and a splash of vibrant colors.
The sneaker comes courtesy of Tokyo native Jun Takahashi, who founded cool-kid clothing label Undercover in 1990. He first teamed up with Nike in 2010 and worked with the brand on several shoe staples, including his Nike Running partnership, Gyakusou.
Releasing as a quartet for the runner, the colorways are “Light Beige,” “Lakeside,” “Green Mist” and “Volt.”
Among the retailers to carry the limited collaboration will be Solebox, Dover Street Market, SNKRS, Kith, Mr Porter and Nike itself.
