Nike's collaboration with Jun Takahashi's Gyakusou International Running Association is entering its sixth year, and in a stark departure from past seasons, the new Fall 2016 collection will feature bright primary colors and neon hues as a reflection of the vibrant culture of Rio de Janeiro. The line has long used the sport of running as the jumping-off point for gear that balances performance and style, and this new collection is no exception. Standouts include the NikeLab Gyakusou Dri-FIT Distance Singlet, built with Dri-FIT material to help keep athletes cool and dry, and the NikeLab Gyakusou Dri-FIT Distance Short, featuring a breathable Nike FlyVent waistband. The Fall 2016 NikeLab Gyakusou collection will be available exclusively on August 4 at the NikeLab Rio space, located on the third floor of the Nike Ipanema store. A global launch follows on August 18 at and NikeLab stores.
