Nike Cortez '72 (White/Red/Blue)
UPDATE: If you missed these when they hit NikeLAB accounts, don't fret, they have just appeared at spots in the USA inclusive of Kith NYC.
We know what you're thinking – what the hell is with that toe cap? It's time for a little history lesson fam, because what you're looking at is the very first version of the Cortez that dropped back in 1972 – the very model that repurposed the Onitsuka Tiger on the sly. Dressed in those unmistakeable Forrest Gump colours, these are familiar but worlds away from the '77 Cortez shape we know and love. These are a NikeLab exclusive, so you'll need to make your way out to a NikeLab retailer or else try your luck online.
