For the past 7 years, Nike and UNDERCOVER’s founder, Jun Takahashi, have been collaborating to redefine performance running gear. The latest NIKELAB GYAKUSOU holiday collection fuses Nike’s performance innovations with Takahashi’s unique creativity to offer key pieces for athletes who want to continue to log miles during cold, wet winter weather.
Takahashi is an avid runner. (Gyakusou is a Japanese word that translates to "running in reverse," and he runs daily in the park going the opposite direction that the majority of other runners go). His rebellious spirit and authentic athleticism are reflected in the collection through his attempts to make everyday running more comfortable.
