‘Sneakers’ themselves seem fitting, but if you were really going undercover, you wouldn’t plaster your brand name all over your footwear right? But that’s the concept behind Jun Takahashi‘s UNDERCOVER label, anyway, a play on the Japanese phrase that referred to girls who wore athletic gear with no concern for its performance application. So it’s not without some sense of irony that you see his name along with Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design emblem blazoned across the vulcanized soles of the UNDERCOVER x fragment x Nike Match Classic, a pack whose clean blue and grey suede uppers are every bit as clean as their soles are wordy. UNDERCOVER stores in Japan have already gotten their shipments but we’ll have to wait for a US drop, so click through for more and stick with Sneaker News for updates on their stateside release date.
