The latest Cortez has Nike branding for days
In the brand’s earlier years, Nike had a policy on the number of “Swooshes” you can use on a sneaker. Over the past few years, that rule is a thing of the past as we’ve seen overbranding become a thing. With the Off-White collaboration and most recently the Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 release, Nike’s taking brand elements to another level. Take this latest iteration of the Nike Cortez Premium as an example.
Done in classic black leather, the Nike Cortez Premium has branding and Nike trademarks all over. You’ll see at least 11 Nike Swooshes throughout the shoe, from the big Swoosh on both lateral and medial sides, the small one on the lateral toe box, and three by the heel with trademarks and Nike Sportswear. There are a couple more Swooshes found on the tongue, insole and outsole. There may be more, but we’ve yet to see the shoe up close.
