Nike‘s newest take on the Cortez is a nod to the silhouette’s rich heritage. Named “1972,” this colorway is a nod to the shoe’s debut year, bringing back a handful of vintage-inspired details.

The shoe is designed with some retro palettes like “Coconut Milk,” “Obsidian,” “White,” “Crimson,” and “Green.” A small navy tongue tag rests at the top of the shoe, complemented by the heel and tri-toned Swoosh on the sidewalls. Beige suede panels appear at the eyelets, toecap and rear quarter, while the rest of the shoe’s body sports a light cream palette. As a finishing touch, the shoe boasts a crisp white midsole, detailed with two thin red lines around the heel to complete the shoe’s nostalgic look.

Though no official release dates have been unveiled, Nike’s Cortez “1972” is expected to land on the label’s website for $90 USD.

In case you missed it, here’s an official look at the Nike Dunk Low “Sunset Pulse.”
