The Cortez Celebrates Los Angeles Sports Icons

The Cortez Celebrates Los Angeles Sports Icons

Welcome to L.A.

When the Cortez debuted in 1972, Cali cats wasted no time migrating the sneaker from the track to the streets, forging its way to staple status for sneakerheads in LA. Nike has commemorated its importance to LA sneaker culture on many occasions, with city-specific pairs like the City Of Angels, as well as teaming up for a handful of collaborations with Compton’s own Kendrick Lamar.

The next two to carry an LA flavor are these two offerings that honor two Los Angeles Sporting Icons — the LA Dodgers and the LA Kings. The first pair arrives in an unmistakable combo of royal blue and white with vibrant red entering on the tongue’s branding and “Los Angeles” heel motif. The Kings rendition arrives in a monochromatic black, white and silver, with pops of royal purple. Each design comes complete with matching white rubber outsoles and scripted “Los Angeles” insoles.

Both pairs expected to release at select stores and online at Nike.com on April 1st. Until then, grab an official look at both pairs below!
