The Nike Cortez '72 makes a comeback as part of the latest Quickstrike release for women. The heritage Swoosh runner which was championed on the track and field by Nike's first sponsored athlete, Steve Prefontaine, returns as if it just stepped off the University of Oregon track. Complete with vintage tooling and detailing, the women's Cortez '72 is constructed of an unlined leather upper with tonal vintage cut Swoosh, heel tab and foam tongue. Underscored by the Cortez's signature bi-density wedge midsole, vintage toe-cap detailing and herringbone gum tread recalls the hallmarks of Bill Bowerman's design. Once a mainstay on the track, the latest Cortez maintains the legacy of the Swoosh on the streets of today.

The Women's Cortez '72 Pack will be priced at $169.95 AUD | Size: Women's US 7-11
