A timeless runner, the Nike Cortez has been a pioneer on the track since its official debut back in 1972.

To pay tribute to its minimalist profile and still modern design, two dateless colorways are offered, consisting of all-white and all-black. Composed of breathable nylon across the majority of its upper, the white pair features leather reinforcements while the black consists of suede along the eye stays, toe cap and heel counter.

Additionally, the rear showcases an embroidery of the year “1972” which essentially refers to the birth of the runner.

Pick your favorite pair at select Nike accounts nationwide now.

I’m pretty biased towards runners and this silhouette is one of example. The tonal offerings are perfect choices for fans and the homage to its year of birth is a cool touch.
