The original Jordan 12 "Taxi" was released in November of 1997. Predominantly white and black, the shoe features gold accents at the eyelets, and a yellow tone on the carbon fiber sole, toe and pull tab. Dubbed the Taxi 12s due to the black and yellow portion on the shoe, similar to the taxis in NYC. The shoe was inspired by Nisshoki, the Japanese rising sun flag, and the dress boot of the average 19th century Japanese woman.
