The latest Nike Cortez Classic Premium Stop Pre has a bit of a story behind the inspiration of the release.

Advertisment

In the early ’70s, every runner in the country was trying to catch Steve Prefontaine. His competitors printed “STOP PRE” T-shirts, but they couldn’t stop Pre from donning one himself.

Forty-five years later, the Nike Cortez pays to the legend, updating the iconic profile with stop-sign colors and graphics.
