Nike is celebrating the classic Cortez runner — developed in 1972 by legendary track coach and Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman — with two special releases this month. One takes the form of the Cortez ’72, a reproduction of the first Nike Cortez, and the other updates the silhouette through a five-piece “Textile” collection. The iconic design language of the Cortez is reinvented through a collision of different materials and textures. There’s a premium nylon base, accented with suede toes and eyestays, plus corduroy on the heel and tongue. Waxed laces and leather lining contribute to the premium feel, while a mini embroidered Swoosh adds an unexpected detail. The kicks are available now at NikeLab locations and online.
