After previous exposure, the SACAI x Nike Cortez 4.0 was unmistakably shown to the public, and it was almost impossible to finalize the release date. It has now been confirmed that it will be released on August 23 at select retailers and official Nike channels.
First released in 1972, the Nike Cortez was designed by Bill Ballman, co-founder of Nike, and has been a hot shoe since its inception. To celebrate Cortez’s 50th anniversary in 2022, Nike teamed up with one of its strongest partners, SACAI, to incorporate a two-layer design similar to the LD Waffle, Blazer, and VaporWaffle collaboration. If you love the SACAI design style, you can start preparing.
