Running has just been injected with some Japanese steeziness as Jun Takahashi, the acclaimed designer behind Undercover, has teamed up with Nike’s running centric Gyakusou range.
Takahashi sees running as “a struggle between joy and agony, elation and exhaustion, persistence and surrender” so naturally he designed a range that articulates this ying and yang principle.
The balanced pieces show off all of Nike’s fancy technology including thermal mapping, sweat mapping, and – everyone’s pal – Lunarlon, using colours that fit comfortably in urban or performance contexts.
