The Nike Cortez Basic SL GS is the youth sizing of one of Nike’s performance running models from the 1970s. Having maintained its appeal for decades, the Cortez has remained a premier lifestyle shoe whatever the trend. For this pair, synthetic leather wraps the upper creating a clean white look throughout. Classic black accenting provides contrast on the Nike Swoosh, heel tab, and portion of the midsole. A metallic silver lace dubrae adds a finishing touch.
