DJ/sneaker legend Bobbito García and critically acclaimed designer/director Omar Acosta debut their 3D animated virtual sneaker to celebrate the 126th Anniversary of Puerto Rico's flag (12/22/21). Four editions feature art/photos/design by the collaborators. The 5th includes pages from award-winning creator Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez’ La Borinqueña comic, with net profits given to Afro-Boricua grassroots programs in PR via the non-profit La Borinqueña grants program.

“My Nike, adidas, and Puma collabs all sold out but creating digital sneakers is next level. Plus, I’m designing with my boy Omar Acosta who has produced projects for Mercedes Benz, Louis Vuitton, Wu-Tang, etc. We’re both Boricua, so naturally we wanted to pay homage to our flag’s anniversary with our debut. This is where sneakers, art, design, technology, culture and indie spirit all collide.”
