The Nike Cortez, one of Nike's most iconic and enduring silhouettes, has been a staple in the sneaker world since its debut in 1972. Initially designed by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, the Cortez was intended as a running shoe and quickly became a cultural phenomenon. Over the decades, the Cortez has seen countless iterations and collaborations, making it a beloved model for sneakerheads and casual wearers. Following the recent re-release of the classic Forrest Gump colorway, Nike is bringing a West Coast flavor to the Cortez with the upcoming Lakers-themed edition.

The Nike Cortez Lakers edition pays homage to the storied NBA franchise with a clean and sophisticated design. The sneaker features an all-leather upper, predominantly in white, which provides a fresh and timeless look. The Swoosh and heel tab are accented in the team's signature purple, adding to the Lakers' flair, while the tongue tag's Nike branding and the insole boast pops of gold.

Regarding design details, the Nike Cortez Lakers stays true to its roots with classic elements such as the serrated edge on the eyestays and vamp, also rendered in white. The sneaker sits atop a white foam midsole, ensuring comfort and cushioning, with an additional touch of gold near the heel to complete the Lakers-inspired look. A white rubber outsole provides durability and grip, making the Nike Cortez Lakers stylish and functional.

The Nike Cortez Lakers will release in Fall 2024 through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $90.
