Nike has announced Nike x GYAKUSOU, a collection by Jun Takahashi that brings the running values of the GYAKUSOU International Running Association (GIRA) into a physical incarnation inspired by the bold rebel spirit of the 70s. At the center of the collection is the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 Trail, a crossover trainer that offers easy transition from the trail to the road. The duality of the Peg Trail is captured by the two colour schemes, one a classic red, white and blue expression and the other in Takahashi’s now familiar mix of earthy tones.
Additionally, Takahashi has featured a rose on each shoe, the flower’s beautiful petals and sharp thorns emblematic of the designer’s Balance/Chaos ethos. From today, the full Nike x GYAKUSOU Collection will be available at Supply and the Nike x GYAKUSOU Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 trail will be available at Sneakerboy for $230.
