Nike is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Nike Cortez with a new release that pays tribute to its original design. Throughout the years the design of the Cortez has been modified, they now have a chunkier midsole, and no longer have a heel pull-tab. But, this OG leather version sports several original design features, including a large Swoosh, slim midsole, rubber toe bumper, and heel pull-tab. The Nike Cortez will always hold an important role in Nike's history as one of the most iconic running shoes from the pre-Air Max era. Sneakerheads who appreciate the old school will definitely find this Nike Cortez Classic OG Leather version a must cop.
