Just a heads up for everyone who was looking to pick up the Nike Cortez 1972 Triple White, it’s now available! Part of the Cortez Compton pack, this all-white iteration of the Cortez comes constructed out of a nylon upper with hits of leather placed throughout the shoe. Suede overlays also accompany the shoe to give the shoe a versatile motif. The most noteworthy feature on the shoe is without a doubt the 1972 embroidery placed on the heel, which depicts the year that the Nike Cortez was released. If you’re looking to pick up a pair, the shoe just dropped at select retailers for $75. Is this colorway better than the all-black pair? Let us know in the comments below.
There’s no doubt that the Cortez is one of the most historical and important shoes in Nike’s history. If you’re a fan of the model, this one should be a no-brainer.
