Nike Cortez “Forrest Gump”

In 1972, legendary running coach Bill Bowerman set out to create a running shoe that was both lightweight and durable and thus the infamous Nike Cortez was born.

Years later in 1994 came the release of the iconic film Forrest Gump which reminded popular culture of this heritage silhouette and the classic colourway of white, blue and red became known as the “Forrest Gump” Cortez.


The Nike Cortez features clean leather uppers, a varsity red Swoosh and brand accents and the vintage style padded nylon tongue. The outsole boasts the original angle-cut tread which offers expert traction and grip.


The Nike Cortez “Forrest Gump” is now online here and also available in-store.
