Japan’s Billy’s has unveiled what is perhaps the most unique Nike Cortez release to date, Kung Fu Kenny’s kicks aside. A nice understated alternative to the likes of Kendrick Lamar’s Nike collaborations, the upcoming Billy’s Swoosh drop sees the iconic runner in a timeless black and white combo. The draw here is undoubtedly the premium leather construction, while the kicks are made even cleaner thanks to the removal of the Swooshes from the lateral sides of the release’s upper. The Swooshless look even includes waxed cotton laces and monochromatic branding to add to the upscale aesthetic.
Look for these to be available exclusively from Billy’s on August 31.
