Check out the annual collaboration between Undercovers Jun Takahashi and Nike. Looks like the Japanese designer has once again had great fun creating the latest Gyakusou running collection.

The range covers 2 shoes in 2 colorways, the Zoom Elite+ 5 (above) and the Lunar Speed Lite, 2 of the lightest and technologically advanced running shoes in Nikes range. Tho personally i think the Lunar Speed Elite's are looking a little dated next to the recently unveiled FlyKnit Trainer+'s (which i WILL be buying a pair of). I like the way this range keeps to a specific color series, purchasers are likely to be serious runners looking to actually wear these for running rather than just casually.

On the personal taste front i don't think either shoe lives up to last years Lunar Spiders. Available from Saturday March 3rd, 2012

    Last year, Back to the Future Day came and went without a public release of the Nike Mags. About a year later and we plebs are getting a chance to finally own simulacra of the most iconic movie shoes short of Dorothy's ruby slippers.

    OK, to be honest, I don't get the hype. Every year, Japanese fashion brand UNDERCOVER teams up with Medicom to produce a new variant of their GILAPPLE light. It's a small, realistic-looking apple with an old-timey car headlight wedged into its core.

    Nike have been slow to make the Air Max Zero part of their regularly updated sneakers. But the latest micro-run of Zeros is definitely something special. Most sneakerheads will instantly recognize the grey, white, and orangey-red colorway as Jeff Staple's signature.
