With many of the Swoosh Brand’s most classic silhouettes like the Air Force 1 and the Air Max 97 getting in on the fall flannel fun, it was only a matter of time before the iconic Nike Cortez received a seasonal plaid makeover as well. The special Cortez’s upper is dressed in a red and black color combo that features two distinct patterns: a standard small checked makeup on the lateral side and a more traditional tartan plaid with extra white detailing on the medial side. The duo of patterns is held together by black leather overlays on the toe cap and throat, a large white midfoot swoosh, red detailing on the heel collar, and a black suede heel piece. The Cortez’s classic midsole and ridged outsole are then dressed in a stark white to complete the look. If you’re a fan of flannel — or you just love these classic Nike shoes — you can look for these Cortez to release in Japan at atmos November 1st for ¥6,300, roughly $55 USD. Not in Japan? A global release on Nike.com is likely to follow later this season as well.
