All signs point to a highly sought-after Air Force 1 hitting shelves this month. After releasing in 2001 and being subsequently squirrelled away into collector’s cubby holes, this ‘Taiwan’ AF-1 reappeared during All-Star Weekend at Nike’s Maker’s of the Game event.

The new version spurred rumours that Nike were working on a wider retro, and new leaked info adds weight to the idea. Py_rates slate that the sneaker will release ‘soon’, with other news outlets suggesting a March release.
@Nike is set to re-drop the fan favourite 'Taiwan' Air Force. The pair has previously dropped in 2001 and at this year's Nike Makers HQ in LA, Nike presented the re-issue to people who were in attendance. A wider spread release is set to happen soon, who's excited to see this beauty return? #NoMoreSecrets 🏴

It would make sense. Another Asia exclusive from 2001, the ‘Hong Kong’ AF-1, has just released and this drop would complement into NCAA’s March Madness events.
Still, everything is speculation for now. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know when Nike give up the goods.
