This week is Paris Fashion Week, which means some of the top designers in the world are in France showcasing what’s to come from them in 2019. One of those brands is Jun Takahashi’s Undercover, who used its Fall/Winter 2019 runway show to debut some more new collaborations with Nike coming down the pipeline.
The standout reveal was a crazy sneakerboot sitting atop the midsole from Nike’s massively popular React Element 87, another model Undercover has put its spin on in recent months. The high-top boot features a mesh upper with various nubuck and leather overlays. A zipper runs down the entire forefoot that reveals a gusseted tongue when unzipped. TPU straps are also installed by the ankle collar that are similar in appearance to a traditional rain boot.
Certainly the more tame of the two sneakers debuted, select models were also strutting down the runway in never-before-seen colorways of the Air Max 720. One features a Lakers-esque color scheme with a bright yellow upper, purple accents, and speckled detailing. The other was a more simple black and red option. Each featured ribbon laces and “We Make Noise Not Clothes” printed on the shoe’s chunky Air bubble.
An exact release date is unknown at the moment for either of these Undercover x Nike projects, but the brands will be releasing collaborative versions of the Zoom Pegasus Turbo on Feb. 28.
