    They are really lovely, very classic, a bit narrow where the toes go but not uncomfortable.

  • The Nike Cortez is Timeless Classic!

    At the risk of dating myself, I have been wearing the Nike Cortez since 1979. Although there have been slight changes over the years, this shoe remains a “Timeless Classic”. I say that because the original white leather shoe with the varsity red swoosh with the blue mid-sole highlight and the waffle sole checks all of the boxes for comfort, style and fit. I do miss the white bumper that was affixed to the front of the shoe on the original release, but other than that, I like the softer leather and the whiter white on the shoe. I don’t run in them anymore, even though I’m sure I could, but I keep 2 pairs in my closet and wear them very regularly! I will keep wearing them as long as Nike makes them available in Men’s Size 10.
