The Nike Cortez Flyknit Men's Shoe combines a timeless icon with ultralight Flyknit technology, creating a silhouette that's instantly clean and classic.
The traditional colours and lines of the classic running shoe return, while a simple, one-piece foam sole creates a fresh, organic look. A herringbone pattern and Swoosh adorn the outsole.
A Nike Flyknit upper hugs the foot and supports the signature teeth-shaped eyestay and toe overlay.
An extended sole adds surface area to the heel for better stability and comfort.
The Nike Cortez was Bill Bowerman's first masterpiece, built to be lighter and more weatherproof than any other shoe. In 1972, it put unprecedented cushioning under the fastest feet in the running world and quickly became the most popular training shoe in the USA. It was an unmistakable icon—a walking billboard that told your story and declared your affiliation—and came to thrive with fierce style on the streets of Los Angeles. Since then, no shoe has expanded the definition of a running shoe quite like the Nike Cortez.
