Straight Outta Compton! The Cortez rules the streets of Compton and Nike Sportswear celebrates that by releasing a tonal Black and White variant today. ‘1972’ is stitched on the shoe’s heel in a font synonymous to the gangter-laden city, while the year commemorates the year Nike was ‘born’. If you feel the need to up your street cred, hit up Commonwealth this weekend for the Nike Cortez Basic 1972 QS. Both colorways are now available and retails for Php 3,995 each.
