Key Features: The updated ’80s silhouette plays with texture and proportion in a big way, merging suede and nylon on the upper, with a car spoiler-like detail jutting out of the shoe’s heel. UNDERCOVER branding is present on a speckled midsole, while Nike branding can be seen on the tongue tag.
Release Date: April
Buy: TBC (likely Nike and select retailers)
Editor’s Notes: After the first teaser at Paris Fashion Week SS19, new information about the UNDERCOVER x Nike Daybreak collaboration has made its way online.
Rumors indicate the sneaker will be dropping in time for summer and will be available in three colorways for men and four for women. Highsnobiety has it on good authority that an April release is planned, but that is yet to be confirmed officially by either UNDERCOVER or Nike.
Notorious leak account @hanzuying has shared what is our closest look yet at the yellow and black colorway. The photos, which you can see below, show detailed shots of the leather lining, TPU plastic heel counter, and branding on the midsoles and heels.
The UNDERCOVER x Nike Daybreak has a tough act to follow after the two brands’ incredible React Element 87 last year. It will also serve as the precursor to the two sneaker styles unveiled at Paris Fashion Week FW19, which you can check out in detail here.
