Nike Remix the Cortez with Sustainable FlyleatherRelease: 14 September 2018
Nike’s Cortez silhouette has enjoyed many iterations throughout its career, with its minimalist uppers and ridged soles recently getting treatment from hip-hop royalty Kendrick Lamar and tennis star Maria Sharapova.
The latest remix from the Swoosh involves some material restructuring that serves to alleviate some stress on the environment, with Nike choosing to go for a hybrid construction of 50% leather fibre and 100% recycled liners, laces and labelling. The ECO-friendly build takes notes from adi’s recent push to reduce their carbon footprint.
Expect this Nike Cortez to drop via Nike SNKRS on September 14 for $90.
