Nike Cortez Forrest Gump Reviewed for Performance
The Nike Cortez Forrest Gump is a new iteration on an old classic. Originally debuting in 1972 as a track shoe, the Cortez was a staple in the company’s sneaker arsenal back then and famously worn by everyone from Farah Faucet and Elton John to the legendary runner Steve Prefontaine. The company is celebrating the 45th anniversary of this shoe by re-releasing a no doubt higher quality and more modern version, geared towards being a go-to lifestyle sneaker.
Although the shoe looks more or less identical to its namesake, the new Nike Cortez Forrest Gump is made with modern materials and enhanced with modern cushioning. It’s simple but stylish and definitely delivers that retro feel. The Forrest Gump colorway is an exact replica of the shoe featured in the film, with a red swoosh and blue line on the sole. The Nike Cortez also come in a ton of other colorways as well. For anyone just wanting an everyday classic sneaker with a little extra character, snag a pair of these Nike Cortez Forrest Gump kicks.
