NikeLab x Roundel Air Zoom Spiridon '16 GPX
Back after 3 years, NikeLab and Roundel by London Underground are back again with a collaboration, this time using the recently remastered Air Zoom Spiridon as their canvas.
This time, the collaboration honors the centennial of Transport for London (TFL)'s iconic typography font: the Johnston100.
Commissioned in 1913, the typface has defined London's underground — on signages, pamphlets, and on the underground's roundels found throughout the city.
NikeLab made use of the iconic font and printed it in a repeating manner, covering each shoe equally, as well as the box.
This collaboration came with a shirt, a drawstring plastic bag, and a publication with iridescent cover by Visual Talent.
The collaboration comes in 2 colorways: Binary Blue, which is a UK exclusive and White, which was available globally.
Both colorways feature a monofilament mesh that covers the upper, showing the Johnston100 font printed, a mini forefoot swoosh, iridescent synthetic swoosh, and a fully reflective mudguard that extends the silhouette's signature 3M taping.
To complete the look, an embroidered Transport for London logo can be found on the tongue of each pair.
Here's another look at the collaboration paying respect to 90's garage rave fashion.
