The coming together of a sportswear giant and a Japanese streetwear legend
The coming together of a sportswear giant and a Japanese streetwear legend, Nike GYAKUSOU infuses tech-focussed silhouettes with the distinctive vision of Jun Takahashi.
Inspired by the bold rebel spirit of the ‘70s running revolution – a decade that saw running emerge as a leisure pursuit away from competition – the Air Zoom Pegasus 36 diverts from the track and gets beefed up for use on the trail. As tech-focussed as it gets, this pair’s breathable mesh upper wears supportive overlays where runners need them most and is secured with a lightweight, durable toggle lace for easy on-the-go adjustability, while Zoom Air cushioning and a rugged rubber outsole provide comfort and stability respectively. Realised in eye-catching yellow, the performance runner wears a printed rose to the sidewall, adding a final emblematic touch of the Japanese designer’s balance/chaos ethos.
