Editor’s Notes: To celebrate the 15th anniversary of London’s Oyster Card, adidas and Transport for London have teamed up on an Underground-themed trio of sneakers.
Each sneaker is limited to 500 pairs and comes with a prepaid Oyster Card in value of £80 (the same price as the shoe). All three silhouettes represent a different part of Transport for London’s history. In addition to the Oyster Card, each pair comes with a leather card holder and bespoke packaging inspired by vintage Underground posters.
The ZX500 RM is inspired by vintage advertising posters found in abandoned train stations. The Continental 80 pays homage to the first ever Underground line in the world, known today as the Metropolitan line. The Temper Run highlights the 15th anniversary of the Oyster Card.
