Four decades ago Nike started on the track. At the University of Oregon, Bill Bowerman began testing footwear ideas with his athletes, and together with Steve Prefontaine, and Kenny Moore, the iconic Cortez began to take shape. During one of his many runs, Moore broke his foot leading to Bowerman to critique his running shoes. This lead to his creation of a new shoe with a first-of-its-kind, full-length midsole cushioning design.
In celebrating 45 years of the Cortez, Nike have revisited three defining moments in all of their iconically coveted retro glory. Wrapped in blue suedes, the first of three Cortez Premiums give a nod to the run that ended in Kenny Moore’s broken third Metatarsal. The blue suede takes inspiration from the arch support-less footwear worn by Moore when the injury occurred. X-Rays showing Moore’s injured foot cover the sicklier, while the attached lace bag features a dime graphic inspired by the call Moore made to Bowerman.
Number two comes wrapped in supple soft leathers, the swoosh-less upper bearing Moore’s permanent marker insignia. Based on the first full-length midsole prototype Bowerman cobbled for Moore when he broke his foot. Inside, the shoe features a sock liner displaying Moore’s training regiment, which was put together by Bowerman.
On the 7 December 1969, Kenny Moore raced through the city streets of Fukuoka, Japan to break yet another record in his already brilliant career: the fastest marathon run by an American. This special-edition Cortez, constructed in OG nylon and suede, arrives decked out in the colours of that historic marathon. It sports Moore’s record-setting race time debossed on the heel counter, plus a sockliner graphic inspired by the Japanese streets he ran that faithful day.
All three colourways of the Nike Classic Cortez Premium Quick Strike ‘Kenny Moore’ will launch in store and online tomorrow morning. Pairs will release in store at our Lower Grounds Store Basement Level, 15 McKillop Street tomorrow morning from 11am with any remaining pairs online soon after.Read More
