Nike Releases the Cortez Nylon ’72 as a Tribute to Oregon

Nike offers another tribute to its humble Oregon beginnings and the Nike Cortez model with the new Nike Cortez Nylon ’72. Following the release of the sleek ivory/pine green color scheme and Oregon-inspired ochre/gorge green conceptualized for the model’s 45th birthday, the brand designed another homage shoe with a number of subtle details worth pointing out.

The heel features the “NIKE” mark in a vintage typography, with the famous ’72 struck in the suede leather. The inside features a tribute to the brands Blue Ribbon Sport origins with insoles covered by old logos including a design representing the Oregon pine tree and the round logo formed by the Swoosh. A classic black and white colorway is finished off with gum soles.

The Nike Cortez Nylon ’72 Oregon is available online at for €85 EUR (approximately $96 USD).
