Dressed with an icon: Nike Cortez

The fashion- and beauty-Blogazine 'amazed mag' and the fashion label 'WE.RE' show us how to dress with an icon.

In 1972, Bowerman designed the Cortez. It was the first track shoe created by Nike and the first shoe with a full-length midsole made from dual-density foam. It exemplified Bowerman’s obsession with stripped-down, high-performance running footwear and influenced the Nike designers approach to footwear for decades to come. “Bowerman had the idea that simpler was better,” says Tobie Hatfield, Director of Athlete Innovations and Explorations at Nike. “These shoes are still shining examples of giving an athlete exactly what they need.”

Today the Cortez is not only an icon of Nike's history, the look is fashionable, still modern and a statement at the same time.
So we teamed up with our munich neighbourhood and asked Amelie, Milena and Antonia from 'amazed mag' and the outstanding fashion label 'WE.RE' to create their own personal look of Cortez.
A big THANK YOU goes out to Christoph Schaller, who did this beautiful shooting!
