Nike Sportswear was very low-key in celebrating the Cortez’s 40th anniversary last year.  This shoe known to be among the most popular choices in Southern California was mostly honored in Asia for the 40th, so it’s natural to see these five new ‘Asia City Pack’ Quickstrikes focus on the region’s metro areas.  In fact, all of these new drops are centered on China, as we see the Nike Cortez take on colorways inspired by Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taipei.  New York sneakerheads will have a chance to grab these this Saturday, March 30th, but these Cortez QS’s are sure to move fast when they hit 21 Mercer tomorrow.

Evidence comes here in the form of a handful of classic sneaker-featured album covers of yesteryear. Some that come to mind are Biz Markie in his Nike Air Safari, LL Cool J in some Air Jordan 1s, Three Times Dope with a mean set of Air Jordan IIIs, and the endless Run DMC x adidas moments.

Aside from the wild graphic on the upper, the colorway itself seems to resemble that of the Philippines, so perhaps Manny Pacquiao would rock these when he’s out promoting his new album or giving a speech at some governmental event. In any case, peep the images below and we’ll let you know when and if these will hit retail.
