Nike Unveils Super-Rare Tube Font Trainers

Nike is releasing a pair of trainers which are likely to be more sought-after than Harry Beck's first sketch of the tube map.

A very limited number of trainers are being produced which feature the Johnston100 typeface — aka the tube font updated this year for the 100th anniversary of its creation.

The Nike Zoom Spiridon features a sample of the typeface, printed on the shoes.

It's not the first tube/trainer collaboration — in 2013 Nike made pairs of Air Max inspired by the old District line moquette, designed by Misha Black.

The District line moquette-inspired Air Max from 2013.

According to website It's Nice That, The Nike Zoom Spiridons will be available exclusively at a Charing Cross pop-up on 9 November, and then in a handful of "select retailers" for a short time after that.
