No-One Will Mistake You For a Tourist With These Tube-Themed Shoes

Nike's branching out from trainers and into the niche market of £100 in-jokes, with a pair of trainers inspired by the classic seat cover pattern from old District line tubes. Hopefully these won't have quite as much gum stuck to them.

The limited-edition Air Max uses the same form factor, sole and last as the classic Max, but this time with an upper made with the same pattern and feel as designer Misha Black's iconic geometric pattern. Sure, they might be a bit dear, and hard to get hold of -- the first 150 pairs are going on sale at a pop-up kiosk at 6am Saturday morning -- but you'll be guaranteed the eternal respect of hardcore commuters everywhere.
