This holiday collection by the pair is centered around the idea of flow motion. The collection seeks to create garments that will enhance a runner’s performance and help them get into a meditative state while running. All the garments are made of ultra-lightweight fabric and include nearly seamless, almost invisible pockets.

“The collection draws from this rebel spirit and determines to ensure athletes run without distraction by finding the mental and meditative clarity for which Takahashi strives,” said NikeLab in a press release.

The collection includes an updated version of Nike’s flyknit sneaker, a legging, a hoodie, a zip-off jacket, and a pair of shorts. The running jacket designed for all seasons features removable sleeves and water-resistant Dri-FIT technology. The Gyakusou running shorts include one of NikeLab’s newest innovations – lightweight knit mesh designed to stay warm even in the pouring rain. 

Prices for the collection retail for $130 for the shorts, $250 for the jacket, $130 for the hoodie, and $200 for the sneaker.

The Gyakusou label is a side project of Jun Takahashi, Creative Director for popular streetwear label Undercover. He’s also the co-founder of the Gyakusou International Running Association, which is a Tokyo-based run club.

The entire collection will be released on November 10th, 2016. The collection will be available at nike.com.
