Growing up in the Los Angeles area during my entire childhood, not a day went by where I didn’t see at least one kid in my school rock a fresh pair of Cortez. The Nike Cortez may not be as well known as a Nike Air Force 1, but there’s no denying that the shoe has made a big impact in Southern California street culture. Barrios and hoods such as Watts, East Los Angeles and Compton were all well represented with the Cortez. This time around, the Cortez is going to represent one of those cities. Let’s take our first look at the Nike Cortez QS Compton.
Coming in two tonal offerings, the Cortez come in all-white or all-black rocking the nylon and leather construction. The shoe honors Compton by using the type font synonymous with the city on the branding placed on the heel as ‘1972’ is embroidered in tonal fashion. Tonal branding, laces and sole units complete the simple look of the shoe. Said to be dropping on April 29th, let us know if you plan on picking up a pair.
It’s dope to see one of the cities that reps the Cortez the hardest get some love from Nike. I was always around the Cortez, but I was never one to rock it. I was more of an AF1 guy. Easy pass on my end.
