The Nike Cortez changed the face of running when it was first released in 1972, and it has since become one of the brand’s most iconic styles. Recognizable by its sleek upper and ridged sole, the sneaker has been seen in many iterations on the feet of Olympic athletes and countless celebrities over the years — and now, it’s being offered in three dusty pastel hues.
The new palette, which dropped exclusively in women’s sizes, includes an off-white, pale purple and light blue colorways. Mirroring the brand’s best-known look, the light blue pair features a contrast Swoosh and heel tab, while the purple pair offers a monochromatic upper. The off-white one boasts an outlined Swoosh. Each style includes a subtle charm detail at the base of the laces for an especially feminine touch.
