Even if you don’t own a pair of the Nike Cortez, you already recognize the shoe as one of the originals that build the Nike foundation. The Cortez dates back to the 70’s (you might remember Forrest Gump beating his pair to the ground – the same pair given to him by Jenny), but this 1988 reissue features a colorway that drew inspiration from another big Nike release of that year – the Air Jordan III.
