A ‘New Warrior’ on the SS19 runway, Nike x Undercover’s SFB Mountain sneaker boot is prepped and ready for a turf war. Straight from the set of ‘70s cult film ‘The Warriors’, Jun Takahashi takes the 2015 silhouette and dresses it in the colours of the ‘Bootleg Truth’ tribe. Red, white and blue with hard-wearing mesh uppers, the Nike Special Field Boot channels high-concept elegance and rough-and-tumble rebellion. Locked in with midfoot straps and branded with ‘New Warriors’ status, the original Bill Bowerman boot was inspired by his military service in WWII - and while the utility aesthetic is still present, for SS19 Jun Takahashi brings high-fashion cult appeal to the high-performance sneaker boot.
