Though the Nike Cortez had always been a classic Nike Running sneaker, Forrest Gump elevated the Nike Cortez, especially the OG White, Red, and Blue colorway, to pop culture cult status when he rocked them on his trans America run. As part of their year long tribute to the Nike Sportswear icon, Nike is set to retro the Forrest Gump Nike Cortez in it’s original colorway during the Spring/Summer of 2009. The retro keeps the classic White upper, Red Swoosh, and Blue striped midsole.
