Nike Cortez Classic

Call us old fashioned, but we prefer the classics when it comes to sneakers. We’ll leave the flashy stuff to the kids, and we’ll stick with a pair of Nike Cortez Classics.

Originally released back in 1972, these low top sneakers made a huge splash on the track scene at the time. With innovations by track coach Bill Bowerman, the silhouette went on to become a mega hit. Now the Swoosh is bringing back the Cortez Classic colorway (yeah, the same ones Forrest Gump rocked in the movie). These kicks are sporting an upper based in white with contrasting red accents found on the tongue tab, heel, and side panel branding. Meanwhile a blue striped midsole wrap up the look to an iconic sneaker. These shoes will officially release on February 28th at select Nike retailers. [Purchase]
