Considered an integral part of Nike's early success, the Nike Cortez was the first track shoe Nike created. Originally released in 1972, it became an instant success when the public witnessed many athletes lacing up the model during the 1972 Olympic Games. Over the years the Nike Cortez has transitioned form the track to the streets, and has been created in countless variations, the latest being the Nike Classic Cortez "Cherry Blossom." This women's version is part of the Cherry Blossom Pack and features a traditional nylon/suede upper, with the addition of feminine cherry blossom graphics on the side panels.
