NikeLab x Roundel Air Zoom Spiridon

The NIKELAB x ROUNDEL AIR ZOOM SPIRIDON follows the first collaboration between the London-inspired brand and Nike with a typographic ode to London Transport’s typeface, Johnston100.

In 1916, Edward Johnston’s font was introduced by London Transport, bringing uniformity across the London city network. The clean simplicity of the lettering has stood the test of time, remaining popular throughout the last century. In 2016, the centenary year of the typeface, the Johnston font was subtly updated for the digital age to create Johnston100. Forming the foundation of the NikeLab x Roundel footwear collection, the revised font is being presented in a never-before-seen manner across the Nike Spiridon.

The collaboration includes two contemporary colourways of the Spiridon – white and navy – with the upper featuring Johnston100 font letters and numbers. The all-over print gives a nod to the head-to-toe logo style that was prevalent in ’90s London, the decade in which the style found its fame.

Like the OG release, the latest rendition of the footwear features both a striking side and mini forefoot Swoosh, rendered in silver to compliment the clean colour palette. 3M reflective taping on the integrated lace system and modernised upper completes the shoe for a fresh update. To round things off, the celebrated Transport for London logo – The Roundel – is embroidered on the tongue of each limited edition pair.

The NIKELAB x ROUNDEL AIR ZOOM SPIRIDON collaboration is due to release online in early December: keep checking back for the full release info. For those of you who can’t wait, Nike will be taking over Charing Cross station on WEDNESDAY 9 NOVEMBER, to host a pop up store with a limited run of the collection. In the meantime, you can shop the current NikeLab footwear range via the banner below.
