This Shaggy-Suede Nike Cortez Gets a ‘Murdered-Out’ Makeover
The Nike Cortez has been a sneakersphere stalwart since 1972 and has arrived in every flavour imaginable. This year is already looking major for the decades-old silhouette with some already-released crispy GR iterations and a wild ,CLOT collaboration. It seems Nike are still celebrating the model’s 50th anniversary in 2023 because next up is a PRM edition. And Team Swoosh have kitted this bad boy out in a ‘Triple Black’ makeover with some interesting materials.
This Cortez PRM rocks a full ‘Triple Black’ upper, with the only contrasting point being the dubrae and subtle, white-speckled midsole. The materials are where it shines, opting for a nubuck base layer, shaggy suede overlays and reflective details on the laces. The blacked-out nylon tongue, side and insole branding round out this sleek colourway.
No release date is locked in for the Nike Cortez PRM ‘Triple Black’ just yet, but with the official images out, it shouldn’t be too far away!
