Nike Cortez Premium 'Black' - 819721-021 - 3/31/16 The Nike Cortez was the first track shoe created by Nike in 1972, and it was designed by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. The sneaker became hugely popular after 1972 Olympic Games. The original Cortez was constructed with leather, but it has seen builds of nylon, suede, and more. The Nike Cortez Premium ‘Black’ is dressed in black canvas and suede, and the upper is accent in gold on the Nike branding and heel. A rubber, herringbone outsole and dual-density foam midsole combine to increase comfort and reduce the stress of running. A white and gold midsole and outsole finish out the design of this sneaker.

Air Jordan 12 'French Blue' - 130690-113 - 4/2/16 The Air Jordan 12 was released after Michael Jordan had already displayed he was iconic through his first 10 years, just as he was showing he was a legend on the way to his fifth NBA title in 1996. The Air Jordan 12 'French Blue' is constructed with a white, tumbled leather base and French Blue leather overlays with a reptilian pattern. The sneaker features metallic silver lace loops, and Jordan branding on the heel in red, white, and blue. The French Blue midsole houses a black and red carbon fiber midfoot plate for arch support. This classic colorway is finished out with a French Blue outsole. As always Jordan wanted the best performing kicks he could get, so the Air Jordan 12 was the first Jordan silhouette to sport a Zoom Air unit, the carbon fiber midfoot plate was carried over from the AJ 11, and the sneaker donned a modified herringbone pattern for improved traction on the hardwood. The tech in this shoe was so good some of MJ’s teammates wore them on court, including Scottie Pippen. Pippen loved the feel and comfort of the AJ 12 so much that he had the Zoom Air units added to his first signature sneaker. The Air Jordan 12 'French Blue' (130690-113) will be available Saturday, April 2nd, in stores only. Check out Where to Cop for details on which locations will be getting these kicks.
