Much like what Nike is doing with their Air Force 1 silhouette, Nike is dropping a new Cortez which will feature layers in a few locations. This Nike Cortez comes dressed in a White, University Red, White and Obsidian color combination. Swooshes arrive in a dark navy paired with the staple University Red alongside the midsole striping and doubled up accents. The aforementioned cool tone pokes underneath the eyestay and heel counter in rippled styling, matching the same aggressive feature found along the outsole.
Check out the official photos below, and look for this Cortez Basic SE available now at select retailers and nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $90 USD.
Nike was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports and initially operated as a distributor for the Japanese shoemaker Onitsuka Tiger (now known as Asics). It officially became Nike Inc. in 1971.The Nike swoosh was designed by Portland State University student Carolyn Davidson，The slogan “Just Do It” was inspired by serial killer Gary Gilmore, who said “let’s do it” just before he was executed by a firing squad in 1977.
