Well, this is it. After being teased all the way back in January as part of its lookbook, the sacai x Nike Cortez "Iron Grey" finally has a confirmed release date. Made in collaboration with one of Japan's most celebrated fashion designers, this was originally supposed to drop with the "White" this Summer but it was met with some unexpected delays.
Outfitted in a classic nylon and suede construction, the "Iron Grey" is contrasted with white leather Nike Swooshes across the lateral and medial side panels. In typical Chitose Abe fashion, she has added two sets of laces, two tongues, and two heels to this Cortez. The midsole has also been double-stacked for additional height, and it's fitted with a Zoom Air bubble for a crazy amount of comfort with every step.
Releasing just in time to celebrate the Cortez's 50th birthday, the sacai x Nike Cortez "Iron Grey" will hit retailers on December 13th. Let us know if you'll be adding this coveted collaboration to your collection later this month, and while you're here, you might as well check out the history of the Nike Cortez!
