Puerto Rico, Stand Up!

Get outfitted for PR’s big parade.

This weekend, New York City will take part in one of our most colorful and exciting traditions, the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade. We’ll celebrate and acknowledge the Puerto Rican heritage that runs deep here in The Big Apple. The parade is always a kaleidoscope of festive colors, but this Sunday, June 14, Fifth Avenue will be showing love with PR’s red, white and blue. And what better way to rep than with a brand dedicated to heritage for the people of so many cultures: adidas!

For the 2009 Puerto Rican Day Parade, adidas has come up with some great pieces to wear while you rep PR. The adidas Originals Puerto Rico Track Top ($80) and Puerto Rico Tee ($32) are a great combo. And don’t worry, they have your feet hooked up, too. The adidas Originals Top Ten Lo ($70) will complete your look. And the little ones can look cool, too ($36).

Also, if you’re in the Herald Square neighborhood tomorrow, Friday, June 12, at 5 p.m., make sure you head into Macy’s to get the chance to meet multi-platinum Puerto Rican duo, Rene Perez Joglar “Residente” and Eduardo Jose Cabra Martinez “Visitante” of Calle 13. The Grammy winning duo will be on hand to spread the word about the parade and these awesome adidas’ pieces.

Honestly, what other brand has a better track record of manufacturing clothing for so many countries/cities/islands? Head to the adidas Originals Store at 136 Wooster St. in NYC to get outfitted for this year’s parade. ¡Nos vemos allí!

    Man, I was hoping for a contest/giveaway. SLAM has spoiled me.

    There will be a new contest soon, Ken. In the meantime, this stuff is hot. Well done, adidas.

    Who authored this piece? Feels like an old Konate “This is why its hot” blog post, but Chris is the new kicks and gear guy. Sign your work or don’t get credit, just like in school (or paid – as in work!). Thanks either way for the info.

    Espero que se encuentre bien. Por este medio deseo notificarle que durante los días 24-27 de octubre vamos a representar a Puerto Rico en Tucson, Arizona en el Torneo Nacional de Tenis. Para nosotros no hay más orgullo que representar nuestra isla en el exterior. Pero para que eso sea posible estamos recaudando fondos en pro de nuestro viaje. Le agradecemos enormemente una aportación para que esta experiencia se pueda concretar. Muchas gracias, Marvin
