Nike @ Capsule | Nike Cortez Takeover 06.01.17
Capsule and Nike are celebrating the 45 great years of the pivotal Cortez runner debuting in 1972. Co-founder Bill Bowerman strived to develop better equipment for runners and the Cortez was one of the first to satisfy the demand.
The Cortez has been used in Hollywood films, television programming and often made its way through the mainstream gaining coverage on screen and on the streets. 2 years after the official release, the Senorita Cortez would be released for ladies sizes and different colourways. The Cortez has made its way across high and low fashion trends, but has stayed true to the original aesthetic and purpose over the years. Great design lasts and this pair is proof of that.
This year, Capsule and Nike celebrate 45 years of greatness in sports innovation by bringing the classics back to the people that made them legendary.
The Nike Classic returns Thursday June 1st online and in-store at our Yorkville and Markham locations.
