Dropping Soon: Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Taxi”

The “Taxi” hue has been a part of Jordan Brand’s line ever since the release of the original Air Jordan 12 in 1996. And while it’s often relegated to the model it first appeared on – despite a recent appearance on the Air Jordan 8 – the bright yellow color is making its return on the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG later this month.

Done in a familiar black-toe style, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Taxi” boasts a black, white, and “Taxi”-yellow color scheme. The quarter panels are done in a premium white leather, while smooth black leather is used for the mudguards, eyestays, side-panel Swoosh overlays, and ankle collar panels.

The titular “Taxi” tone dresses the leather panels on the toeboxes, heels, and ankle collar flaps. As far as branding goes, the sneaker features debossed Wings logos at the lateral ankle collar flaps, as well as Nike Air–branded tongue tabs.

To finish things off, Jordan Brand opts for white rubber midsole units, which are attached to “Taxi”-colored rubber outsoles.

Don’t sleep – the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Taxi” will be available on DTLR.com and DTLR stores on September 24th. Retail is set at $180.
