The Underground network that you cram on to every day isn’t just a world-class transport system, a (mostly) functional historical monument and a source of frustration for millions: it’s also got some pretty hefty design cred. TfL recently celebrated 100 years of the Underground’s famous Johnston typeface by introducing a spiffy new version called Johnston100.
Now you can combine that #iconic London transport aesthetic with a pair of sick creps. Nike has slapped Johnston100 lettering all over its revived 1997 Air Zoom Spiridon for a limited-edition run that’s aimed squarely at London transport geeks. If you answer to that description, you’ll want to pick up a pair in white or navy at a special pop-up shop in Charing Cross station today, before the shoes go out on a wider release in December. After all, there aren’t many trainers out there with both a swoosh and a roundel.Share the story
