Nike Classic Cortez Aw

Date: June 18 2016

Take a trip back to the early days of Nike with the Classic Cortez AW. Although the ‘White/Varsity Red/Varsity Royal’ Cortez is most often associated with Forrest Gump, its heritage goes all the way back to the Athletics West running team (hence the AW) – formed in 1977 by Nike founders Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman. The latest is a fine re-issue of the silhouette, made up of nylon, suede and leather with a royal blue wedge jumping out of the midsole. The shoe comes complete with the 70s era Pinwheel logo, made up with a circular Swoosh arrangement on the heel counter, and an Athletics West shoe bag.

The Classic Cortez AW is available now at select Nike stockists, including Caliroots and 24 Kilates.
