Nike Cortez – ALWAYS CORTEZ – Since ’72, No Upgrades Needed

The Nike Cortez was one of legendary track coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman’s many innovations. Used at the 1972 Olympics and part of the growing running movement of the time, the shoe was proclaimed by Nike as ‘the world’s lightest running shoe’. Before long it was embraced across pop culture, music and became heavily associated with the city of Los Angeles. Today the legacy of the Cortez lives on, as Nike re-issue it for 2023.

The Nike Cortez ‘White/Black/Photo Blue’ launches at HIP on 09/02/23 online at 8:00am and in Leeds from 10:00am.
