Light on the feet: Jun Takahashi’s Undercover continues its partnership with Nike, teasing an upcoming sneaker that embodies its mission to create lightweight yet fashionable running sneakers.
In an exercise in minimalism, all excess padding and materials have been removed from the upper. Now constructed out of a translucent mesh, the upper looks to be incredibly thin with adhesives providing reinforcement and design accents.

Comes in primary colors: Combined with images from Jun Takahashi’s Instagram and press images from Nike’s New York Fashion Week showcase, it seems like the sneaker will be available in three colorways: red, blue and black.
Undercover goes for bold with large Gyakusou International Running Association branding on the midfoot panel and toebox.
Final note: The Undercover x Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% 2 continues the story of their long-term partnership. It merges Undercover’s bold design sensibilities with both collaborators’ passion for running.
