The influence of Japanese design has become exceedingly pronounced in the coffers of modern style, bringing the country’s exquisite taste, understanding of materials, and integration of technical fabrics to the forefront of streetwear. Designer Jun Takahashi has been instrumental in the evolution of the eastern genre, collaborating with a number of notable western brands, companies, and collectives to bring his own impeccable vision to the masses — and now, his personal endeavor, Undercover, has completed its latest project with Nike in the form of the Daybreak shoe.

The Daybreak brings a much-needed update to Nike’s 1979 Tailwind, adding a textured plastic heel that elicits a futuristic take on the company’s retro silhouette. Staying true to the original model, the shoe will utilize a minimalist nylon upper, accented by suede paneling near the laces and toe. On the footwear’s lateral midsole (and tongue), a visually enticing brand demarcates Takahashi/Undercover’s association, coupling with the shoe’s Blue Jay, Summit White, and Black colorway. The collection will include six other colorways, including Bright Citron/Black/Summit White, Obsidian/Gold Dart/Sail, and a more traditional Black/White/Summit White. The Daybreak is slated to release through Nike and Undercover’s respective websites on June 7.
