Named after Phil Knight's acclaimed memoir, Shoe Dog, this version of the Nike Cortez commemorates the original model that was released in 1972. The Cortez was designed by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, they sport a soft leather upper, mesh tongue, and iconic zig zag edges. Plus, they also have an early slim version of the Swoosh on the lateral side, and wider (more modern) version on the medial side. The Swoosh was designed by Carolyn Davidson while she was a student at Portland State, and although it was not immediately loved by Knight, the Swoosh has grown to be one of the most recognizable logos ever created.
