Shortly after showcasing LA-inspired Cortez colorways, Nike presents an update design language for the iconic sneaker. Here, the majority of its construction remains the same thanks to a white leather upper that’s joined by university red and obsidian details found on the Swooshes, heel tab and midsole. The model’s eyestays and heel tabs however feature additional layers, while the sole unit is double-stacked to complete the exaggerated look.

The Nike Cortez Basic SE is currently available at select Nike Sportswear stockists and Nike.com for $90 USD. In other Nike news, you can take a look at the upcoming Supreme x Nike Air Max Tailwind IV colorways.
