This Japanese brand is at it again with its perfect designs, this time with a somewhat understated colourway that lets the sneakers speak for themselves. They are determined to expand on their recent project with Nike and have done so with their Nike Moc Flow SP sneakers. The sneakers look futuristic and sophisticated while still looking incredibly comfortable. The new “Ale Brown” colourway for the UNDERCOVER x Nike Moc Flow SP has been announced, and there are official images for us to look at.
UNDERCOVER X Nike Moc Flow SP
This pair of sophisticated Japanese sneakers come in two understated colourways. Still, in this article, we will focus on the “Ale Brown” colourway, not the blacked-out design. The sneakers are understated and sophisticated, lacking the “CHAOS AND BALANCE” markings of their predecessors, instead having “UNDERCOVER” and the designer “Jun Takahashi” inscribed on the lateral side of the sneakers as well as on the insole. It is worth noting that the same “CHAOS AND BALANCE” motifs can be seen on the tissue paper in the packaging.
The sneaker’s upper is entirely created from a single piece of what looks like premium leather, giving it a uniform and seamless look. The leather is a beautiful brown earthy tone that makes up the “Ale Brown” colourway and is matched by the inner sole, with a pop of colour in the form of “Team Royal”, making an appearance as part of the inner mid-foot area and the overlaid heel tab.
Adding to the seamless look, there isn’t a single lace or eyelet in sight, opting for a drawstring lace that pulls to the back to customize the fit of the leather around the ankle that matches the light colour of the outsole near the heel. The midsole and outsole are slightly darker, splatter-style finishes than the light colour by the heel. They are a single unit that lends itself to the seamless look of the sneakers. The outsole has an exciting, innovative shape and design for maximum comfort and functionality.
Release Date and Price
We rarely get a confirmed release date with the official images of the sneakers, so this is a momentous occasion. The UNDERCOVER x Nike Moc Flow SP sneakers are expected to be released on the 12th of April. They will be available via Nike SNKRS and select retailers within select regions.
The expected price for these sneakers is $160 (R2,856.79 depending on the exchange rate at the time, but prices for South African citizens are usually set and don’t fluctuate with the exchange rate).
