Nike Cortez Basic QS 1972

Nike Cortez Basic GROUP 01 800pix

An icon, reimagined.

The Nike Cortez Basic 1972 maintains the original comfort and durability of Bill Bowerman’s first masterpiece, but with a new revamped Nylon upper, for a premium twist on the classic Cortez style.

With the same low-profile silhouette, the iconic running shoe now features a robust Nylon upper and is available in two classic colourways—clean white with a black-accented sole, and statement black with an anthracite-accented sole. The foam midsole provides soft, lightweight cushioning, while a durable herringbone-textured outsole adds superior traction—perfect for everyday wear.

The Nike Cortez was the first track shoe created by Nike, in 1972, and is therefore thought to be a significant aspect to the success of Nike, Inc. The Nike Cortez was first designed by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman and was released at the peak of the 1972 Olympics, which is why it gained rapid exponential interest by the general public. To commemorate this Nike present the Cortez Basic 1972 Quickstrike pack with two tonal colourways dressed in nylon uppers with suede overlays and bold embroidered “1972” heel callout with tonal solid blocked out sole units.
