Cortez

Cortez

A model that does not go out of style. The Nike Cortez was created with the intention of becoming an athletic shoe in the 70s, during the boom of the hippie movement and the running. Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman were inspired by a flip-flop model to launch the first Nike Cortez, a lightweight and comfortable trainer that soon began to be used in daily activities. Although the model has undergone variations of color, sole and fabric, the current design is practically identical to the original one.

Midsole EVA

EVA is a soft, light, and flexible material mainly used in the midsole of retro-running and lifestyle sneakers for cushioning. Midsoles are cut and shaped from flat sheets of EVA foam. The name stands for Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, a man-made material, which is extremely elastic, but also provides excellent toughness.
