After a teaser just last week, we’re happy to announce that Shelflife will be dropping the UNDERCOVER x NikeLab Court Force Hi. Undercover founder and designer Jun Takahashi utilises the Court Force silhouette to effortlessly balance sophistication with a sense of rebelliousness.
Although Nike and Japanese streetwear brand Undercover may not seem like the expected collaborators on paper, the pair have been making magic together since 2010's introduction of the Gyakusou performance running line. Now, in celebration of Undercover's 25th anniversary, it's getting a NikeLab sneaker.
Takahashi has implemented a clean cut colour palette for this release, a soft tan and grey - which are similar to his past Nike collaborations as well as his runway collections. This release has been comprised of premium leather and features a raised collar and drop-in EVA midsole. Swoosh tagging appears on the tongue, as well as alongside, and co-branding is welcomed on the insole.
The UNDERCOVER x NikeLab Court Force Hi will be available at Shelflife from the 3rd of December for the retail price of R2099.00
