Nike Cortez Basic Jewel QS

Nike Cortez Basic Jewel QS

Posted in FOOTWEAR, STYLE By

Nike’s got such a deep arsenal of classics, it’s no surprise that they can turn reliably to the past to update retro sneakers in ways that are decidedly modern. If you happen to be a sneakerhead — or simply are a fan of vintage style made current — then the Nike Cortez Basic Jewel QS is the sneaker for you.

The sneaker draws inspiration from the classic 1972 style, in and of itself a sleek sneaker — as the brand says, it was originally built to be “lighter and more weatherproof than any other shoe.” That says a heck of a lot, and it’s a claim that Nike sticks by — the Cortez Basic Jewel blends a sharp silhouette with a crisp red-and-white color, a combo that’s made for wearing with light wash denim on easygoing summer days. Best of all? You get it for just $100, a great price for an easily wearable set of kicks. – $100
