Nike have decided to withdraw their upcoming Air Force 1 ,‘Puerto Rico’, a retro design that was originally released in 2000. According to Nike, the release was cancelled because of an issue with the flag on the tongue.
‘Nike is removing the shoe from the marketplace,’ a spokesperson for the brand reported. ‘It was intended to be a re-release of the Air Force 1 Low Puerto Rico from 2000 and the final product does not accurately reflect the original design.’
The retro release was originally expected to coincide with the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York on June 14 but, due to COVID-19 restrictions, that event has also been cancelled.
