Nike Air Force 1 Taiwan Retro

Another popular Air Force 1 from Nike's vault is making a comeback in 2018. The elusive "Taiwan" colorway, originally released in 2001, has been spotted at Nike's Makers of the Game space in Los Angeles.

The Asia-exclusive first dropped 17 years ago, and now enjoys grail status among some collectors. It sports a white patent leather upper, icy outsole, and chunky Swooshes. The logos are mismatched, with a red gradient on the lateral sides, and a navy gradient on the medials.

The pair is among the surprise drops at the Nike's All-Star Weekend event, and is joined by the previously previewed return of the "Hong Kong" Air Force 1. Specifics around the launch, and whether or not there will be a wider release, are not yet available.
