Nike Cortez

Style File

My style is ever evolving and while you may find me clad in dresses and heels often, some days I like to dress down a little (and also to give my poor feet a break). Imagine my happiness when Nike sent me this pair of Cortezs in its original colour. White, college red and royal blue are such classic colours, this combination cannot go wrong or out of trend.

Fun fact: Cortez is the first track shoe that Nike created and Tom Hanks sported it on Forrest Gump.

I threw on some denim shorts, a tee, a denim jacket and took my Nike’s to the arcade (just like my good ol’ teenager days). What I like about this style of shoe is that it is really versatile. If you’re looking to get the one shoe you can wear everywhere, the Cortez has to be your choice- hands down. You can take them to the running tracks as well as on the streets. And the best part yet- it can be paired with a summer dress or a lazy oversized shirt and even boyfriend jeans.

I must also add that it feels like I’m walking on clouds. I exaggerate, but the shoe is really so comfortable and light! It’s built to reduce fatigue and strains on your feet so now I have two happy little feet to take me where I go.

Challenge yourself and see what kind of looks you can come up with the Cortez! 🙂
