Nike Pays Homage to the Athletics West With Cortez Pack

The Nike Cortez was the brand's first track shoe, created back in 1972, and worn by the Athletics West running team, founded by Nike co-founders, Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, as well as Geoff Hollister.

Paying homage to the team, Nike rolls out this Cortez capsule, coming in six archival colorways of the sneaker -- including the iconic white/red/blue iteration donned by Forrest Gump. To go along with Swoosh branding, we also see the team's logo on the insole to complete the retro-inspired design.

All colorways of the Nike Cortez are available at select accounts, including SNKRS now.
