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.

Lightweight TPU plate with purposeful stud configuration provides flexibility, traction and comfort. Heel Segmented Crash Pad creates a smooth heel-toe transition and a natural running gait. Asymmetric lacing is inspired by the design of the Jordan Future shoe. Grippy vulcanized outsole offers durable traction. Rubber outsole delivers excellent traction.
