The Air Force 1 will always be a popular silhouette for Nike – it’s simply timeless. There are certain colourways that have gained specific attention over the years though, one of these being the “Hong Kong” edition that launched in 2000. Now, just after the reissue of the similarly coveted “Taiwan” AF1, Nike are also bringing back the premium Hong Kong AF1. It looks just as great as it did back in the day and thankfully it doesn’t look like Nike have changed any of the essential details.

The colourway of the sneaker is the main attraction here, with it being coated in a deep forest green for the most part, then accentuated with burgundy detailing. This is all topped off by a clean white midsole, white outlining around the Swoosh and of course that ever important velvet lining. As far as Air Force 1’s go, this is definitely one of the classier looking colourways we’ve seen. Swoosh fans around the globe are already getting excited over this release.

If, like us, you’re keen on this reissued classic, the good news is you won’t have to wait on it for long. It’s set to drop via Nike directly and select retailers from the 22nd February. Be warned though, this colourway is extremely desirable and many will be after a pair, so make sure you have a plan in place if you want to secure your pair on drop day.
