The Nike Cortez was minted in 1972 and it has been a West Coast staple ever since. The latest style of the sneaker honors those double roots in two styles that are sure to be a hit with all of our left coast fanatics.

The model is given two tonal colorways with a basic black suede or white leather build. Both models are backed up by mesh paneling and they both also feature a tonally stitched 1972 hit on the heel. The dual homage is a fitting way to bring in the spring on the east or to honor the eternal summer of the west.

You can pick up either pair at Rock City Kicks right now for $75 a pop, khakis sold separately.
