Originally released in 1972, the Nike Cortez has maintained its original design for over four decades. Yet, time and time again Nike has proven they have absolutely no problems reworking one of their classic models. Named the Nike Cortez Ultra BR, this updated version is lighter and more breathable than the original. Currently available in three summer-ready women's colorways, they are crafted with a Nike Tech Ultramesh upper, feature no-sew overlays for support, and sit atop a cored out midsole/outsole that provides ventilation and significantly reduces weight. You can grab your favorite Cortez colorway now at Sneakerhead.
