Japanese fashion designer Jun Takahashi's Nike clout has never been in question, his influence manifesting via his Undercover x Nike projects and the Gyakusou line that he helms. Here, Undercover is given free rein on the Nike Dunk, a classic basketball sneaker that is poised for a resurgence soon.
The result is the Undercover x Nike SFB Jungle Dunk, which removes the traditional tooling in favor of a toothed kit borrowed from Nike's Special Field Boots. Undercover's U logo appears on the pulltab and the "Chaos and Balance" motifs seen elsewhere in Takahashi's work appear on the heel.
This NikeLab collaboration will release soon, with Union in Los Angeles poised to launch the Undercover Dunks on Jan. 18 for $250.
