Sports industry insiders tell HOUSE OF HEAT that Nike Cortez collaborations with Chitose Abe will begin in the new year, with the first collection expected to be released in 2022.

Often credited with launching Nike’s Swoosh brand, the Cortez was the company’s first track shoe. During the height of the Summer Olympics in 1972, the shoe was made available to the general public for the first time. The Nike Cortez’s popularity skyrocketed as soon as the public learned that Olympic competitors were wearing them. A cultural phenomenon on the streets of Los Angeles and beyond, it never lost any of its allure as an iconic runner along the way. They’ll bring back their characteristic double-stacking, with spliced sole pieces, twin overlays, and double tongues for the 2022 collection.

OG re-ups and collaborations with Union are already scheduled for the classic design’s 50th anniversary next year, so this is only the beginning of the special-edition releases.
