Each year, Nike celebrates National Puerto Rican Day with a themed pair of kicks. For 2022, it outfitted the Air Force 1 Low with two tribute colorways. Pivoting to this year, it was revealed in May that the Swoosh would be revisiting the Air Max 1 through a Puerto Rican lens, following up on 2019’s release. This led to the eventual release of the “Orange Frost” pair with the “Blue Gale” version set for a later drop, which has now been revealed to be taking place this week.

Offering a blue finish, the pair’s details matches the “Orange Frost” — save for the color arrangement. The mixed material upper draws inspiration from frozen treats with thematic graphics located at the tongue, sockliner and bandana accessory. Specific callouts to Puerto Rico arrive at the right heel’s red embroidery and the sneaker’s labeled dubrae. Joining the blue flavors, off-white hits appear at the toe box and collar while red accents are sprinkled around the upper. To top it all off, a special shoe box has been prepared for the release with additional graphics placed across its sides.

Release for the Nike Air Max 1 Puerto Rico “Blue Gale” has been officially announced for July 27 with pairs arriving via Nike SNKRS and select retailers at a price of $140 USD.

Enjoy a complete breakdown of the pair above and for more of the latest news from the always-busy footwear industry, Nike has expanded upon its Air Force 1 offerings with a newly-revealed silhouette — the Air Force 1 Wild.
