Published on

Originally released in 2018, followed by a ‘Basic’ model in 2019, the “Forrest Gump” Nike Cortez is making a comeback. In 2023, CLOT revamped the silhouette, offering it in three colorways, one embracing the classic scheme.

The name “Forrest Gump” is inspired by the 1994 film featuring Tom Hanks. In a memorable scene, Forrest receives the OG Cortez as a gift from Jenny Curran, played by Robin Wright, before embarking on a remarkable run.

The updated Cortez flaunts a timeless White, Varsity Red, Varsity Blue, and Metallic Silver palette. Crafted with White leather as the base, Red accents adorn the tongue branding, heel overlay, and Swoosh. A Blue stripe highlights the midsole, while White Nike branding decorates the heels, paired with Silver lace dubraes. The look is completed with a waffle rubber outsole.

Set your calendars for May 8, 2024, when the Nike Cortez “Forrest Gump” arrives at select Nike Sportswear retailers, in-store, and online at Nike.com. Available in men’s sizes, these premium shoes are priced at $110 USD.

In conclusion, the Nike Cortez “Forrest Gump” revival brings nostalgia and style together for sneaker enthusiasts to enjoy.
