UPDATE: Graced with the Midas touch, this glimmering iteration of Nike’s Classic Cortez is fit for a king, queen, and anyone in between. A 45-year milestone isn’t something to keep quiet about, and these metallic gold sneakers are a fitting celebratory statement. Possibly the most veritable testament to the time-honoured silhouette’s versatility is its ability to wear this glitzy getup with fierce finesse.
Nike’s Classic Cortez Leather in ‘Metallic Gold’ is available now from select retailers, including Inflammable.
The Nike Cortez is celebrating its 45th anniversary with a glitzy golden getup. The milestone is traditionally celebrated with sapphires, but in true Swoosh style, the classic running shoe has gone all out with a metallic leather upper and a gold-flecked outsole. Black accents pop around the collar and laces, polishing off an eye-catching women’s colourway.
The Nike Classic Cortez ‘Metallic Gold’ will be available June 1 at select stockists, including online from Sneaker Politics.
