Born in 1972, the Nike Cortez was one of the first running models on the market and became an important part of the sneaker history. With ist aggressive shape and the simple EVA sole, the Cortez instantly became super popular. The appearance in ‘Forrest Gump’ made the Cortez one of the best known Nike designs of all times. Nike releases the classic Cortez silhouette as a premium leather version. This classic colourway has a white leather upper with a red swoosh and a blue sole inlay.
