Leather uppers on this 1972 silhouette boast the classic "Black/Summit White" scheme that’s become a staple in places like Boyle Heights. This Nike Cortez Men's/Women's adds hits of "Laser Orange," which soon arrives on an SB Dunk Low, across branded tongue tags, sockliners and heel overlays, as well as part of the midsole. Elsewhere, "Vivid Purple" animates "NIKE AIR" text on the insole and the full-length serrated tread underfoot.
It was whimsical in a quartet of Hawaiian floral print colorways, and now the Nike Cortez gets a bit more fierce in a trio of fresh new camouflage designs. The Nike Cortez Shoes ‘Camo Pack' utilizes a similar layout to those Aloha editions, adding the namesake print to nylon side panels with suede running up the middle. Leather Swooshes bring in the camos' accent shades.
