After popping up last month at the Swoosh’s Makers of the Game event in Los Angeles during NBA All-Star Weekend, Nike‘s 2018 retro of the Air Force 1 Low “Taiwan” has officially surfaced. A followup of sorts to the re-release of the Air Force 1 Low “Hong Kong” (which originally dropped back in 2001), the “Taiwan” drop largely echoes the look of its early-2000s predecessor. Here, the white patent leather shoes’ Swooshes once again come with mismatched gradients — predominately red on the lateral side, blue on the medial — and are complemented by icy outsoles, silvery embroidery at both the heels and base of the tongues, and red tongue branding badges with matching lining and insoles.
