The Nike Super Cortez appears like a simple Nike running shoe from the 70’s (then again, so did all other Nike designs). The bellied swoosh, flat white leather, and layered midsole is the type of vintage styling that hipsters today dream of, but what sets the Super Cortez apart is that it never actually released. The original Cortez of 1974 didn’t have the textured rubberized toe-cap, and this Super Cortez doesn’t feature any branding on the heel. Shoes like these aren’t just collector items, but museum pieces, and that is reflected in the final bidding price for this shoe when it was a live auction. This is a true piece of history, so take a look at the gallery of images of this rare Nike Super Cortez below and check out the final price from the auction by swoosh26.2 on eBay.
