They served as the perfect backdrop for television sitcom Taxi, as well as Martin Scorsese's masterpiece, Taxi Driver. The Checker Cab of New York City, though all was retired in 1999, will be forever synonymous with the city it served. In its second release of For the Love of the City Collection, Nike highlighted the importance of this icon to the Big Apple with Catch A Cab Edition a Nike Vandal Low in the color scheme of the classic Checker Cab. Featuring a white premium leather upper, checker pipings, with yellow accents: patent leather Swoosh, laces, outsole, and contrast stitching. The theme extends further to the tongue, with its Statue of Liberty & On Duty/Off Duty motifs, and the insole, with the imprint of a taxi fare guide.
The Nike For the Love of the City Collection NYC Catch A Cab Vandal Low is available exclusively starting today at House of Hoops retail locations.
