Nike Cortez “Latino Heritage Month”

By Staff  |  10/07/2016

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.

The Nike Cortez "LHM" is available now at select retailers, like Shoe Palace, and online for $100 USD.
