The collaborations between Nike and Sacai have been some of the most successful in recent years. For the 50th anniversary of the Nike Cortez, Chitose Abe has created his own version of the OG silhouette and we have images of what they will look like.  


Following rumours, Sacai confirmed its Nike Cortez collaboration through its Fall/Winter 2022 menswear and Pre-Fall 2022 womenswear lookbooks. Now sneaker collector par excellence @solebyjc has revealed a closer look at the Nike Cortez by Chitose Abe.

It was in 1972 that this iconic model first saw the light of day. It was designed by Bill Bowerman, the Swoosh brand’s co-founder. Three years ago they came back stronger than ever with a series of reissues. And now they’ve been in our wardrop for 50 years.

The new silhouette takes inspiration from the classic design created by Bowerman, opting for white leather and details in red and blue. However, the essence of Chitose is present in the overlays. The Swooshes are doubled and the sole arrives with a futuristic look and additional cushioning.
