Being a NY native i got lot of love for those House of Hoops releases which pay tribute to NYC with some sort of special design, such as this new Nike Vandal Low. Known as the ‘Catch a Cab’ this Nike Vandal pays tribute to something which you possibly cant miss in NYC, yellow taxi cabs. If you remember, there was also a Nike Zoom LeBron 6 ‘Taxi’ which also used a theme inspired by taxis.
The Nike Vandal Low ‘Catch a Cab’ features a white upper with a yellow patent leather Nike swoosh, yellow shoelaces and a yellow outsole. The toe-box makes uses of yellow as well in the form of little dots. A black and white checkered pattern which NYC cabs were once infamous for are bordering between the upper panels. Taking things a few steps further into the Catch a Cab thing is a tongue tag which has an On/Off Duty design along with a pair of insoles which show the cab fare. The key elements such as the checkers, the cab fare image and the On/Off Duty design makes this Nike Vandal Low ‘Catch a Cab’ an extremely well representation of NYC cabs.
Watch for this Nike Vandal to release exclusive at House of Hoops on June 19th, 2009. Follow the jump for more detailed photos. Via: FootLocker
