Touted as the most important sneaker in the history of Nike, the Nike Cortez is a very cool protective everyday shoe. Replace the insole with your own custom orthotic or over the counter support, and you have something really fabulous. Designed in 1972…these shoes are as old as me! And much cooler! While my friend Stacy is lovingly gifted fashion forward shoes by husband Bill, I covet these Nikes & aim to make a pair mine. I like the sturdiness of the leather upper and the overall feel. It’s a throwback to 6th grade with the giant plastic pink comb in the back pocket ready to feather the hair. I longed for a pair of the pristine white leather kicks with a simple yet bold colorful swoosh. What about you? As I put the cap on my strawberry lip smacker gloss, I reflect & finally shop for a pair of coveted Nike Cortez. Better late than never!
As far as what’s the newest coming out of Nike? Nike announced this week an artificial intelligence shoe measuring app for your phone. Using the Nike Fit technology your feet can be more accurately measured. This equals less returns for Nike & less painful feet for us in the general public. From news.nike.com, ” for example, if you have used Nike Fit to scan your feet and you go to purchase a Nike Cortez on the Nike app, you won’t see a run of sizes anymore. Instead you’ll just see your size for that particular shoe. Then if you go to buy a Nike Air Zoom Pegasus you might see another size.” As a podiatrist, the biggest problems I see stem from poorly fitted or inappropriate shoes. Look for the Nike Fit app in July 2019 in the United States & August for Europe.
