Maria Sharapova collaborates on this luxe Cortez
More L.A.-inspired sneakers.
Combining her favorite sneaker – the Cortez – with her favorite city — Los Angeles, the place she calls home — Women’s tennis superstar Maria Sharapova has teamed up with her sponsor Nike for this fabulous edition of the Nike classic.
The former world #1 has always had a strong eye for fashion, both on and off the court. Sharapova says she wanted to create a shoe that captured LA’s high style. And it certainly does, inspired by LA’s laid-back vibes, the earthy hues of a West Coast sunrise and colors that say ‘expensive’.
Playing off of Sharapova’s childhood interest in calligraphy, the shoe utilizes refined design lines for an off-court elegance. Thoughtful attention to craft and detail brings dimensional layering with premium suedes, leathers and soft gold accents.
“I love how it’s minimal and understated in certain ways, yet there’s so much attention to detail with the finishes, materials and even color,” says Sharapova. “I was inspired by my morning walks along the coast on my way to practice, and I think we captured that peaceful essence in this shoe.”
