Last month, Complex.com published ‘A Complete Guide to Seinfeld’s Sneakers’, a look at the kicks Jerry wore on his seminal 1990’s sitcom. Sneakerheads have long admired the quality and quantity of vintage heat you can see in re-runs something like twenty times a day, but if the list were geared toward Seinfeld’s sidekick, it’d be a simple one page homage to the Nike Cortez. This 1968-born runner was George Costanza’s favorite shoe, a classic model that looks just as fresh as it did upon its debut or fifteen years ago, thanks to these two new colorways. One matches a Mineral Blue upper with a Bright Mandarin sole stripe for a slight Miami Dolphins nod while the Obsidian and Honeycomb edition is close to the Michigan Wolverines. In that case, maybe they’re not ‘Costanzas’ at all, but something of a ‘Chad Henne’ pack, and no matter the inspiration, you can find them at Nike Sportswear retailers like Size?.
