Nike Scraps Air Force 1 “Puerto Rico” Due To Design Flaw

Nike has now scrapped the 2020 release of their Air Force 1 “Puerto Rico.” The shoe intended to replicate the original Air Force 1 Low “Puerto Rico” from 2000, the 2020 version was made with one flaw that’s preventing its release. Although it sports the same white and blue color scheme, PR flag at the heel and on the tongue insole graphic, this year’s drop features a backwards flag on the tongue, unlike the original’s right-facing flag. We’re not sure how Nike missed this one, but here’s all the brand provided in their official statement:

“Nike is removing the shoe from the marketplace as 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”
