Detailed Look // Undercover x Nike Daybreak “Bright Citron”
Since the release of their Nike React Element 87s last September, Jun Takahashi’s Undercover has flexed a few other collaborative capsules on the runway, many of which will be releasing in the near future. One of those is the upcoming seven-piece set of Nike Daybreaks
The model itself appears to be a revised take on 1979’s Nike Tailwind that first surfaced back in June at Undercover’s Spring/Summer 2019 show at Paris Fashion Week. A speckled, plastic heel piece has been added to the design that gives the pair a more futuristic appearance. The rest of the sneaker maintains its traditional nylon upper with suede overlays. Undercover branding is stamped on the lateral midsole and tongue tag.
According to @pyleaks, seven pairs are slated to release: three for men and four for women. Women will get to choose between “Black/Black/Sail,” “Lucky Green/University Red/Sail,” “Obsidian/Gold Dart/Sail,” and “University Red/Black/Spruce Aura” color schemes with the men receiving “Black/White/Summit White,” “Blue Jay/Summit White/Black,” and “Bright Citron/Black/Summit White.”
Today we get a detailed look at the latter, thanks to Instagram’s @HanzuYing
A release date is still TBC, but you can expect these, and the entire Undercover x Nike Daybreak collection, to release during the Summer of 2019 for $160 a pop.
