Nike Sportswear


By now, you know the story of the Nike Cortez. Dates back to the days of Blue Ribbon Sports, where it was known as the Corsair, continuous production since 1972, Forrest Gump, etc.

Even without the shoe’s long history, it doesn’t necessarily need an elaborate build up. The simple good looks, especially in the classic white, red, and blue 1972 colorway, speak for themselves.

The Athletics West edition features not only the original colorway, but the original nylon and suede construction.  If this were any closer to the actual, 1972 article, the box would have to include a copy of the Watergate tapes, instead of an Athletics West branded nylon carrier bag.

If a size is not listed, it is sold out.
