Following on from the release of the UNDERCOVER x Nike Element React 87 Jun Takahashi continues his creative partnership with the Swoosh with the Nike Zoom Fly SP Gyakusou.
Rather than put the UNDERCOVER twist on another silhouette, Takahashi has decided to further his running and lifestyle venture – Gyakusou. An avid runner himself Takahashi drew inspiration from his runs in Tokyo’s Yoyogi park in order to inform his athletic partnership with Nike.
The namely loosely translates to ‘running in reverse’ and is a nod to how Takahashi runs anti-clockwise around Yoyogi park, while everyone else runs clockwise. This small act of counter-cultural defiance is carried over into the Gyakusou brand and how they go against the traditional athletic wear norms.
It was only a matter of time before the Gyakusou brand turned to footwear, and the Nike Zoom Fly SP Gyakusou does not disappoint. The silhouette comes in a Blue Nebula, Ink and Black colour-ways, with the translucent upper being dressed in cross bone motif. The shoe also features Nike React technology, ensuring comfort and durability.
