NIKE CORTEZ NYLON BLACK WHITE
The Nike Cortez is the first track shoe created by Nike, in 1972 and is therefore thought to be a significant aspect to the success of Nike, Inc. The Nike Cortez was first designed by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. Bowerman, an Olympic-class track coach, felt that athletes needed a comfortable and durable running shoe designed for distance training and road running. The Nike Cortez was released at the peak of the 1972 Olympics, which is why it gained rapid exponential interest by the general public.
