If you love your sneakers and love the Nike brand, am very sure you appreciate the Nike Cortez kicks and although people who are known for rocking Corteze’s almost most of the time are Latin Americans where they usually wear them with shorts and long socks or in a khaki suit.
Nike teamed up with young, Latin American street artists to celebrate their Latino Heritage Movement. Chilean artist, INTI, has taken symbols of different Latin American cultures and united them in a single design, presented beautifully on the Classic Cortez silhouette. The Nike Classic Cortez Nylon LHM Men’s Shoe brings back the famous, old-school runner for everyday wear with a unique design that pays tribute to Latino heritage.
- The Nike Classic Cortez Nylon LHM sneakers’ textile and suede construction provides premium comfort while the foam midsole offers lightweight cushioning and the ultimate rubber tread delivers durable traction.

Know a little bit of the Cortez origins
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 country. 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.
