Nike Cortez “Latino Heritage Month”
Nike has celebrated cultural moments like Black History Month to Chinese New Year for years. This month, it pays tribute to National Hispanic Heritage Month, with a limited edition Nike Cortez.
Dubbed "LHM", or Latino Heritage Month", the sneaker takes design cues from Mexican culture. It sports a black nylon and nubuck upper, with a Mexican blanket-inspired Swoosh on the medial side and a tonal black Swoosh on the other. "Cortez '72" is done in yellow on the heel tabs, a nod to the year the shoe was first release. And finally, a translucent green outsole completes the look.
