Nike Cortez || The Forgotten History of Nike's Most INFAMOUS Shoe
Do love a cortez so comfy and still look great.
Maybe it's time I got my Michael Johnson Atlanta '96 Cortez out of storage.
Except mine were never that clean after that Fatboy Slim x Armand Van Helden show at the Academy in '99. The one with the rotating boxing ring.
Trainer stories/question: I distinctly remember at the 2006 World Cup standing at a Cologne urinal and flooded piss on the floor soaking through breath holes in the sole of my silver Adidas, making my socks wet. What trainers were they and why was the design so rubbish?
No, more conventional looking, bit like Superstars.
Crocs actually may have dried out quite nicely.
Got it...Forest Hills. Tried to fill the holes with superglue, mastic. Nothing seemed to last.
Edit: Sophisticated adjustable sole ventilation system/piss holes.
I did quite like a Forest Hill
Only ever had one pair of Cortez about 20 years ago, loved them - they were a sample apparently, white leather with a gold swoosh & were the only trainers people tried to buy off me. Probably because my taste in trainers is generally fucking howling but still, they were pretty nice & I always wished I hadn't worn them to absolute destruction.
