Here we take a closer look at the Nike Cortez 72 Black Ivory. This premium rendition features ultra distinctive style cues straight from the early 70's, giving a classic look that stays true to the original.
That said, this shoe is a bold leap from its ancestors, crammed with the latest innovations for added comfort and support.
It all starts with the cored-out low profile midsole which sits underfoot. It still boasts the conventional shape and features a split colour theme of black/white, but this is now more lightweight than ever without sacrificing durability.
Leather is utilised for the upper in premium grade for an ultra soft feel that crinkles and ages with time. As such this is a silhouette which looks better the more you wear it, just like your favourite pair of jeans.
To compliment the full shade of black, all details remain tonal from the woven Swoosh across the sidewall to the laces and branding. Finally, a contrasting white mudguard on the heel gives even more assurance and that 70s aesthetic.
The Nike Cortez 72 Black Ivory is available now and selling across the retailers listed. For more updates on upcoming sneaks be sure to browse our dedicated ‘Shop Nike’ page.
