Every June the Puerto Rican community feels a heightened sense of togetherness as those with the island heritage in the United States convene in the streets of NYC to celebrate their storied culture. The Puerto Rican Day parade, held on the second Sunday of every June, is expected to draw an incredible crowd with some notable Puerto Ricans such as Carmelo Anthony, Victor Cruz, and many more, and for this eventful weekend Nike will continue its streak of honorary releases that should have islanders, New Yorkers, and sneakerheads excited.
Commemorating this year’s boricua flavor is the Air Trainer 1 Mid designed with crocheted overlays in the flag’s colors. The added details like the flag on the heels and the coqui frog, a common sighting in the rainforests, embroidered on the tongue. Tomorrow marks the official release of the Nike Air Trainer 1 Mid PRM QS “Puerto Rico”; you’ll be able to purchase these exclusively through the Nike SNKRS App as well as NikeTown NYC, KITH NYC, and other select retailers.
