^Wow 3 people posting at the same time.

One nice touch about the shoe was the ability to the hide the midsole that houses the Harmonix unit. I thought it was impossible to do something like that. Well not impossible but something that would be very tough to do.

Those aren't really what I was expecting at all.......honestly they look nothing like the first tai chi's. I really think there should be a midsole on those, and the grip doesn't look all that good compared to shoes like the "desire", which were great. Also, do you have a pic of the medial side of the shoe, cause that was the part of the originals that I loved so much. Overall, a nice looking shoe with a different design, but looks nothing like the tai chi, employs none of the same properties as the new version has harmonix, patent leather, no midsole and the old had mostly leather or suede, nice midsole design, and the ever eye-catching half-half laces (which I really liked).....these two look nothing alike.

Thanks for the pics, the shoes are butt-ugly!! And Harmonix is the worst kind of cushioning!! They look like cheap versions of the Jordan Brand Moss shoes.

Here is the thing about not looking like the original Tai Chi...

Basically you saw what people had said about the TMac2...they look TOO similar to the TMac1...(not that they care about that specific shoe, but, they were trying to evolve the design, ya know?)

So, they wanted to take the 1/2 and 1/2 color concept (which has been done A LOT ie, the Desire, Tai Chi, Holistic Uptempo) and basically have it flow around the shoe...(I wish I could get the conceptual drawings, they show this idea better). Anyway...if you rotate the shoe around in your hand you can see this...

The leather/suede versions will be released too, mainly as SMU's for stores, and also, I agree with you, the half/half laces would connect it more to the original and would also look nice... :smile:

Thanks for the pics. Not really feelin' them, but the yin-yang bball symbol is a nice touch. I like the first ones better though.

i like the look of them

i agree that the yin yang/ basket ball symbol is very creative.

We will flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
