Nike Brings Back The OG Forrest Gump Cortez

Nike Brings Back The OG Forrest Gump Cortez

Forrest Gump Nike Cortez

In 1972, legendary running coach Bill Bowerman set out on a mission to give his runners a shoe that was both lightweight and durable. Little did he know that when creating the Nike Cortez, the shoe would later enter the pop culture lexicon through its feature in Forrest Gump. Now Nike is bringing back one of the original colorways of the Cortez featured on Gump’s feet on February 28th. Featuring a revamped premium leather upper true to the original, this pair stands out thanks to a vintage-inspired foam tongue and Varsity Red Swoosh branding while accents of Royal hit throughout. Stick around after the break for a better view of the shoe Forrest made famous and grab your pair on 2/28 for an easy $100.
