Originally released in 1972, the Nike Cortez has been a mainstay in the Nike line-up for over 40 years. They're recognized as being part of Southern California urban fashion, were famously featured in the movie "Forest Gump," and always the go to sneaker for George Costanza on "Seinfeld." This new version of the iconic model, the Nike Cortez Ultra, stays true to the original silhouette but gets completely reworked with new materials. They are crafted with a lightweight textile upper, feature sleek no-sew overlays, and boast a lighter midsole comprised of Solarsoft foam and Phylon.
