Nike plans to stretch the celebration of its Cortez silhouette by adding another special colorway to its upcoming lineup. Joining forces with its respective “LBC” edition, a “Compton” iteration is set to hit shelves sporting a familiar black and white color scheme. Minor changes pay homage to its 45-year anniversary and the city of Compton via a “Compton” hit on its heel tab and the initials “CPT” right under it in old english font. “XLV” can be found on its insole for a final touch.

The Nike Cortez “Compton” will drop on June 1 for $75 USD at select retailers and nike.com.
