You Can’t Go Wrong With the Cortez
Decade after decade continues to prove it: the Nike Grade School Boys’ Cortez will never go out of style. Originally released in 1972, the Cortez was the brainchild of track coach Bill Bowerman and became an immediate hit with both runners and lovers of casual footwear. Its distinctively tapered upper features stitched leather and an oversized Swoosh for classic Nike style, as well as a subtle wedge graphic on the sole profile to tie the visual effect together.
At Home in Every Closet
The Cortez has remained popular because it's a canvas for self-expression, going well with everything from shorts to jeans. Its visual pop is partly thanks to the sawtooth treads that are visible from the side of the shoe, as well as Nike logos on the heel and tongue. The low silhouette gives your ankle lots of breathing room, while the wedge EVA midsole cushions every step. The Cortez is ready to give you a boost in style and comfort.

•Low-hanging collar lets your ankle move freely.
•Premium upper features leather and other materials for durable good looks.
•EVA midsole is full of cushion and support for running and long days on your feet.
