Collection: Nike Cortez Sneakers
The sneaker that started it all. Nike’s first-ever running shoe, the Nike Cortez was a revolutionary trainer that expanded the definition of what a training sneaker was. Most notably seen on the feet of Forrest Gump, the Cortez is the silhouette that catapulted Nike into the spotlight, cementing their growing status as a leader in athleticwear.
First released during the 1972 Olympics, the Nike Cortez was Swoosh co-founder Bill Bowerman’s first masterpiece. Designed to be more lightweight and weatherproof than any other running shoe before it, the silhouette quickly became the most popular training sneaker in America, with advanced cushioning that saw it become an unmistakable icon.
The latest Nike Cortez stays true to the OG style, with classic Swoosh comfort and a truly vintage look. The leather and synthetic upper offers added durability, while the herringbone-patterned outsole provides the traction you need on the track. Since its inception, the silhouette has seen dozens of colourways and collabs, including styles with Stranger Things and a wildly popular range with Kendrick Lamar.
