Thanks to its unforgettable appearance in Forest Gump, the Nike Cortez in red, white and blue has become the sneaker’s most iconic colorway, as well as an inextricable part of its history. This year, the Swoosh is offering a fresh spin on that combination with a patriotic-looking version of the Classic Cortez Leather in white, Midnight Navy and Gym Red. The simple silhouette sports a full-grain leather upper, EVA wedge midsole and herringbone-patterned outsole, and the addition of the iconic color scheme results in a timely, “USA”-themed offering just ahead of the 2016 Rio Olympics. Take a look at the latest rendition of the Nike Classic Cortez Leather here, and look for the sneaker now at select stockists like suppa.
