Nostalgia is playing a huge part in influencing the modern fashion scene. It’s also had affected the way people rock sneakers. One of the biggest winners in this nostalgia movement is the Nike Classic Cortez.

The Nike Classic Cortez were originally released back in 1972. Introduced as running shoes, it features full length-EVA midsole that adds a layer of padding for comfort, and the signature herringbone pattern outsole which provides plenty of traction.
