Future me is a bit miffed at past me, because I used to own a pair of Nike Cortez trainers in the 90s and they’re all I want in a sneaker style RN. I didn’t jump on the whole Adidas Stan Smiths bandwagon (although I did buy a pair of white Puma baskets) but I’m really feeling Nike’s Cortez for spring.
Btw, I feel like every post on here has referenced the 90s lately, from musical comebacks (hiyas Crystal Waters and Jamiroquai) through to Cher Horowitz headgear, but I’m NOT EVEN SORRY. Might even change the site tagline to “THE NINETIES NEVER LEFT US”.
Having said that, my current style inspo for the Cortez is less Forrest Gump and alllll about Farrah Fawcett’s hot take in 1972 while filming Charlie’s Angels.
While the big hurrrrr and skateboard will probs firmly remain fantasy, I’m despo to make those indigo flares with a flash of bare ankle and the red swoosh of the Cortez a reality.
