An all time classic, Nike's first running shoe has been given the Ultra Moire treatment. Revamped with modern materials, this Cortez remix has a whole new look while still staying true to the heritage of the original silhouette.

Dropping in two colourways, we're most excited about the White and Varsity Red drop, the same classic colourway laced up by Forrest Gump. Worn by Tom Hanks in the 1994 movie, the low-top sneaker features a one-piece moulded upper with added perforations for breathability.

The midsole is made up of three foam densities for maximum cushioning and finished with a durable herringbone patterned rubber sole, giving you added grip whethere you're hitting the track or stomping the streets.

Created back in 1968, the aim of the Cortez was to produce a running sneak that was both comfortable and could withstand long distances (something that was not available at the time).

Becoming an icon in its own right, the Cortez was seen on the feet of runners, musicians and celebrities around the world. By setting a new standard for running kicks, it's just as popular today as it was way back when.

Available in OG White/Varsity Red as well as a slick Black/White colourway, cop your pair of Cortez at Footasylum now.
