The Classic Cortez
Yesterday we posted a amazing visual of rapper Kendrick Lamar, and asked you guys to guess the topic of our next post. Some of you may have went with the obvious, and said Kendrick Lamar. Unfortunately you were wrong, our post today is about the classic cortez. The Cortez sneaker is by Nike ofcourse and was first presented to the world in 1972! The shoe was originally designed for track runners to provide comfort, and now we all wear them for sheer style. L.A. gang members took on the shoe and made it apart of their daily attire back in the day, and rappers like Eazy E of NWA. There is so much history behind this sneaker, yet so many people are sleep on this shoe. I'm actually really happy not too many people are wearing these sneakers because I love wearing things no one else cares about. Good news for anyone into exclusivity, Recently The Cortez got a new look with snakeskin leather, but they kept the classic black and white colorway( picture below). I am all over these shoes and will definitely start collecting them.
