After returning in their original Bill Bowerman-crafted form a few weeks back after a bit of a retirement, the Nike Cortez '72 is now back in a high-top, chukka-type look thanks to the addition of an extended collar. This modified new look is something that has never been seen before on the Nike Cortez, but the sneaker's signature "Forrest Gump" colorway complete with premium white leather uppers, a hit of blue in the herringbone midsole, and varsity red Swoosh and heel detailing keep things familiar. No release details have been shared yet, but you should look for these to drop in the coming weeks.
