New York transit isn't known for being well-loved, but House of Hoops has created a new shoe for Nike that pays homage to the city's taxis, the “Catch a Cab” sneakers.

The “Catch a Cab” sneaker by House of Hoops features the same bright yellow known as the official city taxi color, as well as an on/off image and a fare chart on the sole of the shoe.

The “Catch a Cab” shoe will be available in June.

Implications - House of Hoops has created a quirky pair of sneakers that pay homage the taxis of New York City that make the run at all hours of the day.
