After a rumored Air Force 1 “Taiwan” retro surfaced yesterday, Nike has followed up by announcing the release of the other shoe seen in the leak photos: the “Hong Kong” Air Force 1.

Returning in the same iconic colorway, the “Hong Kong” Air Force 1 is much more low-key than the “Taiwan,” but no less striking. The familiar dark green grain leather upper is accented by a minimized red swoosh and white midsole. The small Swoosh has been relegated closer to the shoe’s heel, offering the classic model a slightly different facade. Tonal detailing includes matching laces and tongue branding, with a black sockliner and heel branding rounding out the package.

Look for the “Hong Kong” and “Taiwan” pairs to appear at this weekend’s “Makers of the Game” event in Los Angeles, followed by a general release on February 22 for $130 USD.

Nike is gearing up to drop a host of heat in the coming days, including Kendrick Lamar’s “Kenny II” Cortez.
