The Iconic Nike Sneakers From ‘Forrest Gump’ Will Be Rereleased June 1

It would be inaccurate to say that the Nike Cortez is in the midst of a comeback — the classic sneakers never truly left — but on their 45th anniversary, the celebration is in full swing.

A week removed from a ’70s-inspired campaign starring Bella Hadid, the Cortez releases tomorrow in its iconic white, red and blue colorway made famous on the big screen by Tom Hanks in “Forrest Gump.”

Priced at $79.99, the sneakers will be available from select retailers including Foot Locker. They feature a white leather upper accented with a red Swoosh and heel tab, while the EVA midsole is striped with a streak of blue. The look is completed by the Cortez’s signature ripple sole.
