The Nike Cortez was originally created by American track and field coach Bill Bowerman and was designed to be a running shoe. It made history in 1972 as it became one of the most popular running sneakers ever thanks to its unrivalled cushioning. The current collection continues to use the classic silhouette whilst further advancements have been made regarding the comfort and cushioning technology. However, they are now so much more than just a running shoe and they come in a variety of different colourways.
Suede: leather cut from the back, while the fibers remain on the surface, suede is less prone to damage than nubuck.
Textile: is a lightweight material, which is offered in a very wide color scale and is mainly used for summer footwear.
Cork: is a popular, purely natural, and easily renewable material that stands out for its properties such as flexibility, strength, durability, and water resistance.
Crater Foam : Crater Foam is a super soft and light foam in the midsole. Its made with at least 20% recycled materials, and it is one of Nike’s latest technological innovations. Crater Foam also added to the rising popularity of the Space Hippie line.
Nike Grind : is recycled material from the Nike workshop, with the help of which the company aims for a more efficient circularity of its own production.
