The Nike Cortez descents from the days when Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman worked on a shoe together with Onitsuka Tiger, then ordered and distributed it. After its initial leather version, they switched materials to a lightweight nylon construction to develop the lightest running shoe ever. With over 45 years in the book, and even though you don’t see them on the track and field anymore, the Nike Cortez is more than ever a statement shoe, not just on the U.S. Westcoast.  This all-white leather takes it back to the year when it all started. A leather upper with OG red Swoosh, heel tap, and midsole as well as rubber outsole.
