All eyes are on Paris as Fashion Week takes over the French capital. Head to our Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019 hub to find all the latest news from the industry’s best houses, brands, and designers.
When UNDERCOVER showed its FW19 collection on the runway at Paris Fashion Week yesterday, sneakerheads will have noticed a number of unreleased Nike sneakers being worn by the models. As is the case every year, PFW is a hotbed for new sneaker models and collaborations being unveiled by brands and the UNDERCOVER show was no different.
Having presented its React Element 87 collaboration last time out, Jun Takahashi’s label teased both an Air Max 720 and a yet-unnamed sneakerboot. Highsnobiety was on hand to capture on-foot shots above, as well as detailed in-hand shots below.
The co-branded Air Max 720, whose general release version is set to be released very soon, features a speckled design and vivid color blocking that has become a signature facet of UNDERCOVER x Nike collaborations. “We make clothes not noise” is printed along the side of the sneaker’s Air bubble, while the shoelaces have been swapped out for ribbon laces. The Air Max 720 was seen in a number of colorways.
Perhaps the more interesting of the two styles, the aforementioned sneakerboot. It looks to feature React cushioning technology and its high-top construction is busy with leather and nubuck overlays. A zip runs down the entire forefoot, while TPU straps are seen on either side of the ankle opening.
Take a look at the sneakers above and stay tuned for further release information.
