The Cortez’s classic “Forrest Gump” look isn’t going anywhere anytime soon; over the past few months alone the timeless White/Varsity Royal-Varsity Red combo has graced the likes of the Cortez 72, “Athletics West” drop and Ultra Moire make-up and now the colorway is back yet again — this time on the Classic Cortez OG. As per usual, a white leather upper dons bold red accents while a dash of blue graces the midsole.

This reintroduction of the 1972 release is due out this Thursday, July 14 at select NSW spots and nike.com.
