All the sneaker cats that know me also know that this is my ultimate favorite! Although I currently discarded every single pair I had of these because I ultimately used them until they actually became tired of me (which is rare since it’s usually the other way around). Released four days from now the Nike Cortez Classic returns.
Originally released in 1972 and a true pioneer in the running world, 2015 sees the return of the original colorway of the iconic Nike Cortez. In the last 43 years it did not only leave a mark in the history of sport but also quickly evolved into one of the first fashionable sneakers adopted by the fashion world. Returning in its original colorway, the Cortez Classic features a premium white leather upper, foam tongue, and a varsity red Swoosh logo. Furthermore it comes with a full-length EVA foam midsole, which adds a thick layer of padding to keep your foot elevated over rugged surfaces. Additionally, a rubber outsole molded in a herringbone pattern provides superior traction in classic Cortez form. The Nike Classic Cortez drops on February 28 on nike.com/sportswear and select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide, including SOTO Berlin. (HS)
