In 1972, it put unprecedented cushioning under the fastest feet in the running world and quickly became the most popular training shoe in the country. It was an unmistakable icon-a walking billboard that told your story and declared your affiliation-and came to thrive with fierce style on the streets of Los Angeles. Since then, no shoe has expanded the definition of a running shoe quite like the Nike Cortez.
The Men's Shoe features a new kind of Flyknit and a powerful combination of cushioning designed to meet the demands of explosive players like LeBron. Stiff Pebax outsole plate quickly snaps the foot from heelstrike to toe-off for a faster, more explosive stride. Stiff Pebax plate with Sharkskin traction pattern for aggressive grip on the track. 3M Reflective accents for visibility in low-light conditions. Continental Rubber for durable traction on any surface. Revlite midsole cushions every step.
