If you are a big fan of the Nike Cortez, then unfortunately, the last few years has been fairly dry. Overall, this is a staple of the Nike brand. However, they haven't done a lot of new things with the sneaker. Instead, this shoe is thought of as one of those staples that you shouldn't really touch. That isn't necessarily a bad thing as this shoe will always have its place in history. Moreover, who can forget its association with the film Forrest Gump and its title character?

That said, CLOT and Nike have been changing the tide in terms of Nike Cortez innovation. CLOT's Edison Chen is a huge fan of this silhouette, and he has wanted to offer his take on it. Over the last few months, we have seen a white and black colorway, as well as a black and yellow offering. Now, however, Chen and his CLOT brand are coming through with a white, blue, and red model reminiscent of the OG colorway. And yes, this model is going to be called "Forrest Gump."

As you will see in the images down below, this shoe has that iconic white leather upper with some blue and red highlights. However, what is truly unique about this shoe is the fact that it comes with a 3-in-1 twist. As you can see, the shoe can be worn like the image above. In the images below, you can see how you can take out the inside and wear that like a normal shoe. Moreover, you can take the covering and wear that like a slip-on. Overall, this is a truly fantastic concept that revitalizes the look of the original Nike Cortez.

If you are looking to grab a pair, you will be able to do so as of April 7th for $140 USD through JUICE stores across the globe. These are a dope homage to the Nike Cortez, although they could prove to be polarizing. Let us know what you think of these kicks, down in the comments section below.
