The Nike Cortez made it’s first debut in 1972 and was the first ever track shoe designed by Nike. Designed by Bill Bowerman, who felt that athletes needed a shoe that was comfortable, durable and could withstand long distance running. The protege to sport this shoe was Kenny Moore. The KM QS Cortez are set to launch soon, and the three models set to be released will pay homage to the very first development of the shoe as well as the athlete who sported them. Colours available are yellow, blue and white, all which highlight a prolific sporting event this style of shoe partook in. Cortez are known for superior cushioning and support, and the latest additions pay close attention to detailing.
