Nike’s ‘Wheat’ Cortez Is Latest Sneaker to Get Down With the Brown
Nike’s hottest new colorway is everywhere from old-school Cortez to the latest Jordans.
Now, Nike is unveiling its iconic Cortez model, that unisex classic favored by the likes of Farrah Fawcett, Bella Hadid and, perhaps most famously, Forrest Gump, in the eye-popping fall/winter colorway.
It may look totally tan—with white accents here and there—but the sneaker is really a study of contrasts. The tan suede upper and matching laces are subtly offset by a “Sail”-colored midsole and nylon tongue.
You may have to look closely, but the difference is there.
This new Nike Cortez “Wheat” is available through select Nike retailers now, but expect a wider release (along with an official price) to come soon on Nike.com.
