Did you know the Nike Cortez is the only model Nike has continuously produced since it’s original debut? Since 1972, the Cortez has never missed a season, earning itself a perfect attendance in it’s 39-year history. The shoe’s hardly get enough face time on the blogs, therefore we’re putting this Nike Cortez Basic Nylon in the spotlight in an attempt to bring the sneakers back into public eye. This particular pair features a velvet brown upper consisting of nylon side panels and suede trim on the toe, midfoot and heel. Accents come in the form of metallic bronze, as seen on the leather wrapped Swoosh and sole. You can find them now at select Nike accounts, including Sneakerhead.
