Nike Cortez Flyknit OG | Now Available

Nike’s heritage silhouette gets the Flyknit treatment.

The Cortez is a model that carries a rich, fulfilling, history. First releasing in 1972 the silhouette has been interpreted in leather, nylon, suede & breathable mesh in the past. We’ve seen Ultra Moire renditions, a Roshe-Cortez and even a Chukka Boot Cortez in the past, but never has Flyknit been applied to the beloved Cortez; mixing a crowd favourite silhouette with technology that has supported athletes since it’s release. Not only modernising the Cortez but also bringing comfort, support and breathability to the model. To solidify the relationship between heritage and technology, we see two colour ways set to release: Red/White/Blue & Black/White.

The Cortez Flyknit sits atop a revised mid & out sole for the 2017 rendition, utilising a grooved pattern for any underfoot obstacles, ultimately adding comfort to the ride. The Flyknit upper includes a sockliner for support, doing rid of the traditional tongue, alongside a heel pull-tab embellished with the Nike Logo. Original Cortez features remain in the leather heel counter, lacing system and toe cap. The Cortez Flyknit is finished with the tradition Swoosh and the recognisable burst of colour through the midsole that we’ve come to relate to over the years.

The Nike Cortez Flyknit is now available online. Sizes range from UK5.5 - UK12 (including half sizes), priced at £110.
