The Women’s Nike Classic Cortez Leather “Black/White” comes in women’s sizing and displays all of the timeless design elements fans and collectors of the shoe have come to love. Designed by Bill Bowerman, a legendary figure in Nike’s history, the Cortez was originally released in 1972 and is regarded as the original performance track shoe. The upper is constructed in black leather, including the tonal toe cap and raised heel panel. A contrasting white leather Swoosh sits on the mid-panel and white leather dots the heel with black Nike detailing. The ridged outsole provides those wearing the Nike Classic Cortez Leather with ample amounts of traction and stability.
