Three Los Angeles Natives Give Their Take On The Nike Cortez

Particular Nike models are heavily associated with certain areas and demographics. The Nike Air Force 1 has thrived for some long thanks to the strong sneaker culture in New York City, hence the ‘Uptowns’ nickname. The Nike Air Max 97 has a strong following in Italy thanks to the iconic “Silver Bullet” colorway that took off there. Foamposites will always be associated with the DMV and Prince George County. As for the Nike Cortez, the shoe has been a staple in Los Angeles since debuting in 1972.

Today, Nike News released an official story on the two Los Angeles-themed colorways that dropped earlier this morning in the Nike Cortez “Long Beach” and Nike Cortez “Compton” celebrating 45 years of cultural importance in Southern California. They talked to LA staples like legendary tattoo artist Mister Cartoon, designer Janae Roubleau, and model Alexis Quintero.
