The Nike Cortez originally released in 1972 and was created by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. They were designed to be lighter and offer more cushioning than other running shoes that were currently on the market at that time. The Nike Cortez was an instant success, and 45 years later still remain an absolute must have. Although they have been created in nearly every colorway and material possible, you would be hard pressed to find a rendition more sought-after than the "Forrest Gump" model. Worn by Tom hanks in the popular 1994 film as his slighty slow-witted character ran across America, they feature a white leather upper, blue and red accents, and classic herringbone pattern on the outsole. The latest re-release of this movie & footwear legend will be available in a women's sizes soon.

As we enter the 2015-16 NBA season, one of the biggest questions in the minds of fans is, "Will this be the year LeBron gets his first title with the Cavs?"

First released in 1997, the Air Jordan XIII is a Tinker Hatfield-designed model that was inspired by the black panther. Hatfield used the quick and elusive animal as inspiration because it mimicked Jordan's playing style. Jordan strived to come out of nowhere on the court, possess a ferocious edge, and be there and gone before opponents could react. Available in several colorways, the Air Jordan XII "Grey Toe" was an unreleased sample that first went into production in 2005. The "Grey Toe" model features two of the most recognizable elements of the AJXIII design, including an outsole that represents paw prints, and a hologram that resembles a panther's eye. It has been nearly 10 years since this retro model was released, so it will likely be another highly sought-after Air Jordan model.

This fabric is also nicely accented with a metallic thread that shimmers in the light. You can grab this look in the Skytop and Cuttler models, which are both available now.
