UNDERCOVER’s Spring/Summer 2019 Collection was an unrelenting fever dream. Set against an unconventional runway space, Paris Fashion Week 2018 guests were bombarded with a slew of unique designs from Jun Takahashi who drew inspiration from eight style tribes. Attendees were also fortunate to catch a glimpse of the Japanese label’s new collaborative footwear with Nike and Converse.

Courtesy of Haven Shop co-founders Arthur and Daniel Chmielewski, fans online can get an up-close look at the partnered kicks that centered upon the perennial Waffle Racer and Chuck Taylor silhouettes. Takahashi added a futuristic twist to the Swoosh’s low-top runner, implementing protruding overlays on the heel caps with knife-like indentations. As for the beloved Chuck, the classic shoe receives a deconstructed zipper system on the lace portions alongside key ring holders on the toe and heel caps.

See both updated silhouettes above and stay tuned for more details. For those who couldn’t attend, get a front row look at all of the Paris Fashion Week Men’s 2018 madness here.
