Original Story (01/20/21): Paris Fashion Week has officially kicked off, and though we won’t be seeing any live runway shows, brands will still be previewing their upcoming collection’s in digital format. Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER has shared a look at its 2021-22 Fall/Winter Men’s Collection on the brand’s Instagram account, which includes a first look at a couple upcoming UNDERCOVER x Nike Dunk Highs.
A follow-up to 2014’s Dunk Sky Hi and 2017’s SFB Jungle Dunks, the Japanese label’s latest take on the Dunk is more reserved, leaving the Dunk High’s typical construction intact. The shoe is seen in Triple Black and Triple White colorways with contrasting speckles splattered throughout the midsole. UNDERCOVER’s signature “CHAOS” and “BALANCE” motifs make their appearance on the heels of each shoe, though the German word for balance, “GLEICHGEWICHT,” instead of its English counterpart. More German text appears around the ankles, “NEUES LEBEN, NEUER LÄRM,” which translates to “NEW LIFE, NEW NOISE.”
Check out both colorways of the upcoming UNDERCOVER x Nike Dunk High “Chaos” below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates on their release.

Update (02/18/22): The UNDERCOVER x Nike Dunk Highs are starting to make their way to retailers.
It looks like the construction has changed a bit since the shoes were first revealed over a year ago. New photos of the black colorway now reveal a premium tumbled leather base, rather than the nubuck we saw initially. Check out the new photos below and look for these to drop in the coming weeks.
