Soon you can be as fresh as Forrest Gump.

In 1972, legendary running coach Bill Bowerman set out on a mission to give his runners a shoe that was both lightweight and durable. Little did he know that when creating the Nike Cortez , the shoe would later enter the pop culture lexicon through its feature in Forrest Gump . Now Nike is bringing back one of the original colorways of the Cortez featured on Gump’s feet on February 28th. Featuring a revamped premium leather upper true to the original, this pair stands out thanks to a vintage-inspired foam tongue and Varsity Red Swoosh branding while accents of Royal hit throughout. Stick around after the break for a better view of the shoe Forrest made famous and grab your pair on 2/28 for an easy $100.
