Billed as 'America's Largest Cultural Celebration', the annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade is set to kick off on Sunday June 9. With 50 floats, 15 thousand marchers, and over a million spectators, Nike have released an equally spectacular pair of Air Max 1s.
The parade-inspired kicks have been dressed in the national colours of the South American island to commemorate the 62-year-old tradition. Both pairs proudly rock the Puerto Rican flag on the heel, while the inside of the tongue reads 'Pa Lante' and 'Mi Gente' which roughly translates to 'go for it, my people'.
The Air Max 1 'Puerto Rico' dropped on June 1, and has since sold out, but we'll keep an eye out for a restock.
