The Nike Cortez has just joined the long list of models available for customization over on NIKEiD.

The classic Nike model is available in either suede, leather, or nylon. As of yet there are no special graphics or prints, but we wouldn’t be too surprised if the Swoosh team started trotting them out sooner or later.

Will Kendrick Lamar’s Nike Cortez call out have a measurable effect on the amount of pairs for that sneaker that we see in the streets? The first test has arrived, as the sneakers randomly just popped up in this quickstrike trio of quilted looks. Each of the pairs utilizes nylon on the sides, leather on the ends, and suede for the Swooshes. It’s the nylon that ends up the most interesting here, as it comes in a diamond quilted pattern for each of the clean silhouettes pictured.

After a stint in the tiger camouflage that so many sneakers are rocking these days, the original Nike running shoe gets back to basics with a colorway that ties into its best known regional affiliation. You might call these new Nike Cortezes the ‘Kirk Gibsons’, because the Blue Hero colorup for one of SoCal’s favorites most definitely carries with it a Los Angeles Dodgers tie in. Check them out up close after the jump, let us know how this more traditional approach ranks against the modern graphic renditions and grab yours from NSW retailers like Titolo.
