They feature a white and black compel up, along with gold accents, as seen on the lacing eyelets. They are dubbed the Taxi’s, as the arch area and outsole feature a black and yellow portion, reminiscent of NYC taxi cabs. The shoe itself has some history behind it, as it was inspired by the Nisshoki, which is the Japanese rising sun flag, as uprightly as a 19th infancy women’s dress boot. Literature features stitched leather which radiates outward like sun rays, and this theme extends all the way to the arch of the shoe. The arch features two large rands, which run along the midsole, and feature intumescent lizard skin, similar to the Air Jordan 2 (II). The sole, although heavy, is durable and sturdy, making these a good pair of shoes to play basketball in. The only knock on these is the lack of the inner bootie, which means that the shoe does not fit as abroach as it could, or should, for that topic.
