    In order for Shirley to maintain control, she stays grounded to her heritage while representing herself with a unique style. With the Tang Force Ones (named after the Nike Air Force Ones), symbols of China and family are reimagined through American fashion trends. Therefore, the shoes protect Shirley as armor in two distinct ways: first, they represent her fashion sense as a means of representing herself and having control over how others perceive her, and secondly they ensure she stays rooted in her heritage and does not lose track of home. As she mentioned in our discussion of fear, her family and the feeling of home offer a comforting sense of control which these shoes strive to represent.
