This Roundel NikeLab Air Zoom Spiridon is the second iteration of the collaboration that honors the centennial of Transport for London (TFL)’s iconic typographic identity.
This time around, they use the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon silhouette to pay respect to ‘90s garage rave fashion and the century-old font with 3M hits and bold prints.
On the Roundel x NikeLab Air Zoom Spiridon, a sample of the Johnston font is sublimated and printed in a repeat pattern and engineered to cover each shoe equally. A transparent monofilament mesh covers the print on the shoe’s vamp. Further embellishments include an iridescent synthetic leather Swoosh and a fully reflective mudguard, which serve to extend the silhouette’s signature 3M taping and further amplify its reflectivity.
Look for the Roundel x NikeLab Air Zoom Spiridon to release on November 9th at an exclusive pop-up in Charing Cross station London, and November 10th in Tokyo. Select retailers around the globe will release the White colorway on November 17th.
