As much as we love trend-forward pieces, we know that without some classic essentials, like a go-to sneaker, our wardrobe wouldn’t be complete. Whether you are into the sporty bike short look or prefer a flowing maxi dress, adding a pair of classic sneakers makes the outfit feel that much more fresh and current. When it comes to sneaker shopping, we love a cool dad sneaker, but right now, we’re gravitating toward more sleek pairs that look like they could stand the test of time. That’s why, this season, we can’t get enough of the Nike Cortez Sneaker ($70).
The Nike Cortez was first released in 1972 but was completely revamped for a new generation in 2016. You know how they say everything old is new again? Well, with nostalgic styles reigning supreme in the fashion world, it only makes sense that women everywhere are gravitating toward this iconic silhouette. The instantly recognizable red, white, and blue colorway is still a cool choice, but Nike’s now made black pairs, pink pairs, and even one that’s iridescent. This is the shoe you’ll want to wear all Summer long; happy shopping!
