The Nike Cortez was Bill Bowerman's first masterpiece, built to be lighter and more weatherproof than any other shoe. In 1972, it put unprecedented cushioning under the fastest feet in the running world and quickly became the most popular training shoe in the USA. It was an unmistakable icon—a walking billboard that told your story and declared your affiliation—and came to thrive with fierce style on the streets of Los Angeles. Since then, no shoe has expanded the definition of a running shoe quite like the Nike Cortez.
NIKE BEAUTIFUL X POWERFUL COLLECTIONCelebrating powerful women in sport, this collection honours the athletes who pushed boundaries, changed attitudes and emerged victorious. This season takes inspiration from one of the first female marathoners, Joan Benoit Samuelson, who reshaped the running world when she grabbed the gold in 1984.
