With a rich history of sporting heritage and technical mastery, Air Jordan has been synonymous with innovation since its inception. But aside from its game-changing silhouettes, the American-based brand has captured crowds from around the world with its extensive portfolio of covetable colourways. From retro-inspired tones, including ‘Bred’ and ‘Chicago’, to university-led hues, Jordan Brand has defined the industry and paved a way for a new era of timeless sneakers.

One of the most iconic colours from the range, the ‘Taxi’ colourway has recently returned to the limelight thanks to new iterations and an unwavering demand for archival Jordan designs. Heavily inspired by New York taxis and dubbed the “Yellow Toe”, this black, white and yellow shoe was first seen on the Air Jordan 12 in 1996, and later on the feet of Michael Jordan. Now, a must-have for sport and sneaker fans alike, we’ve rounded up the three most-wanted ‘Taxi’ trainers from Air Jordan’s collection.

Air Jordan 1 Mid Reverse Yellow Jordan

Offering a fresh take on the AJ1, the Air Jordan 1 Mid Reverse Yellow Jordan flips the hue of the OG silhouette. Presented with black toe box, the upper features Taxi-coloured overlays on the ankle, eyelets and toe cap. Swoosh branding appears on the sidewall, while Jordan’s world-famous Wings logo dresses the ankle strap. Ideal for off-duty days, ready your wardrobe for this Jordan 1 iteration.

Air Jordan 12 Black Taxi

Taking style cues from the 1996 basketball shoe, the Air Jordan 12 Black Taxi stays true to the sneaker’s roots with a black base and yellow details on the tongue, heel branding and midfoot patches. The silhouette retains a structured frame, dressed in premium nubuck and tumbled leather for extra style points. To finish, responsive cushioning and a padded tongue deliver all-day comfort.

Air Jordan 8 Retro Taxi Womens

Released as part of Jordan’s ‘Air Jordan Summer 2022’ collection, the Air Jordan 8 Retro Taxi Womens reworks the design of Michael Jordan’s eighth signature basketball shoe. An all-leather base is complemented by yellow accents on the buckle, branding and midsole, while a fragmented heel panel updates Tinker Hatfield’s original silhouette. Rounded off with a practical lacing system and a perforated sidewall, highly functional details throughout deliver that classic Jordan feel.
