The Men's Nike Cortez Basic Shoes Black is a low profile lightweight everyday casual sneaker. The Men's Nike Cortez is one of the earliest, most iconic sneaker designs created by Nike in 1972. Although this all black gym shoe model has gone through many incarnations, this version features leather in the upper for a retro modern look.
Although this solid black Nike Cortez Basic looks simple, it was a revolutionary concept for running shoes in its era because of its thicker than average foam midsole. Originally debuted as a long distance training shoe, the Nike Cortez model was surpassed by the sudden surge in the athletic shoe industry in the 70's. The Cortez sneaker still prevails as a stylish, slim, no frills gym shoe that can be paired with casual streetwear or athleisure wear for an effortlessly cool look.
