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.

Editor’s Notes: The UNDERCOVER x Nike Daybreak is set to be released on June 7, with Nike’s European release calendar already carrying two colorways of the hotly anticipated drop. Only the blue and black/white colorways are currently listed on Nike’s release calendar, with the yellow, green, triple black, and red pairs yet to receive an official release date.
The style was first teased at Paris Fashion Week SS19 before we were given a closer look via Highsnobiety magazine Issue 18 (see above). Three colorways of the remixed runner feature in the issue’s Selections section: the vivid green and red colorways, as well as a more pared-back black version.
