The Orange Frost iteration of the Nike Air Max 1 Puerto Rico pays homage to the Puerto Rican frozen treats (helados) known as “piraguas” that come in flavors such as coconut, passionfruit and pineapple.
The sneaker is made with a combination of leather and suede materials in shades of “Orange Frost,” “Citron Pulse,” and “Coconut Milk.”
And much like its cool-toned counterpart, the “Orange Frost” features an anthropomorphized graphic of said sweet, with popular flavors written on the shoe’s packaging.
Notable design elements include Jewel Swooshes, lace dubraes with “Puerto Rico” branding, special piragua-inspired tongue labels, and “Puerto Rico” embroidery on the right heel tab. Special packaging that include a custom towel to further celebrate Puerto Rico Day will also be included in the release.
