About the Nike Cortez Basic Mister Cartoon
Mister Cartoon is synonymous with Los Angeles, and Los Angeles has been considered the home of Cortez since day one. To celebrate the ever-popular icon, Nike has once again partnered with the LA legend and world-renowned artist to release three new iterations of the classic Cortez.
Cortez OriginsThe Nike Cortez was Bill Bowerman's first masterpiece, built to be lighter and more weatherproof than any other shoe. In 1972, it put unprecedented cushioning under the fastest feet in the running world and quickly became the most popular training shoe in the country. It was an unmistakable icon—a walking billboard that told your story and declared your affiliation—and came to thrive with fierce style on the streets of Los Angeles. Since then, no shoe has expanded the definition of a running shoe quite like the Nike Cortez.
