A Detailed Look and Review of the AND1 Tai Chi Retro for 2018

The legendary streetball brand AND1 has brought back the Tai Chi for 2018 in the OG white/red colorway.

While not a 1-to-1 recreation, the shoe still looks and feels solid.

There are a few areas that could use some improvement in order to make them look more like the original. The toe wrap is a bit thick, the lining is red instead of white and the fit is a bit on the roomy side. But with those things aside, it’s great to see the Tai Chi back again.

Premium leathers and nubuck were used along with the chrome shank plate and reflective basketball. EVA foam is used for the midsole while the strobel and insole offer additional cushioning.

If you’re planning on grabbing a pair of the AND1 Tai Chi make sure you sign up for the brands newsletter for a promo code. You’ll be able to get the shoe under retail that way.

Leave your thoughts on the return of the AND1 Tai Chi below and stay tuned for updates on future releases.

The AND1 Tai Chi is available now at AND1.com

  1. 6pm.com has them for under retail in several colorways including this one. $79.99 if I remember correctly. Limited sizing though. I am super tempted but I TOTALLY dont need these.

  2. These shoes are sick. I just love the tai chis full stop. I have a pair of Tai Chi mixtape editions which aren’t for everyone bit they’re just awesome and have historic meaning. Well done And1.
