Tottenham have launched their new Nike third kit for this season, with the bold purple and yellow design directly inspired by the streets of the club’s N17 neighbourhood.

It celebrates the ‘vibrancy’ of N17 and is the product of a mentorship scheme run at a local art studio.

Eight young creatives from the local community were mentored at the nearby Tottex studio in 2019 alongside Nike’s design team. As part of that, they were able to express what Tottenham as an area means to them, which has now come to life as the new third kit.

The prints and patterns used come from the local streets.

Spurs fan Jake Osman was among those who inspired the kit, telling the club’s official website, “This is a bucket list moment for me. When I was younger, I used to sit on my parents’ kitchen floor and draw football kits so to see the final design come to light – it’s really overwhelming.”

Maylon Clarke, meanwhile, specifically inspired the N17 logo on the inside of the collar.

“As a huge Spurs fan, having the opportunity to work on this project and attend workshops with Nike has been incredible,” Clarke said.

“This experience has brought together my two greatest passions – football and design – and this has only spurred me on further to pursue my creative dreams. To be part of inspiring a Spurs kit that people will look back on for years to come is the best feeling ever.”

The third kit completes a strong lineup of Spurs kits this season. The home jersey is a time-less plain white, while the away gives off bold intergalactic vibes.
