Nike Unveils Nike Cortez by A.L.C.

2017 is turning out to be a great year for fans of the Nike Cortez. Currently celebrating the model’s 45h anniversary, the Swoosh has released a handful of special renditions of the brand’s first ever running shoe. Up next? The Nike Cortez by A.L.C.

The Nike Cortez by A.L.C. came about when Nike partnered with Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C. to create three different colorways of the Nike Cortez said to be inspired by the rich palette of neutrals found in A.L.C.’s Fall 2017 collection. The tonal suede uppers of the shoes are paired up with features such as the brass lace tips, snakeskin on the heel, inspirational quotes on the foot beds and longer laces that gives you the liberty to tie around the ankles.

“The Cortez has always been my go-to shoe,” says Lieberman. “I design A.L.C. clothes with a sneaker in mind, and I think people have started to style their daily outfits with sneakers in mind, too. The Cortez shares that ‘never not hustling’ spirit that define both the Nike Cortez and A.L.C.”

All three colorways (pictured above) of the Nike Cortez by A.L.C. will be available starting August 25 exclusively at Nike x Nordstrom sneaker boutiques and Nordstrom The Grove. Starting August 28, they will also be available on Nike.com and Nike+ SNKRS in addition to Net-A-Porter, select Nordstrom stores and A.L.C.

Retail price is set at $100.

Popular backpack brand Sprayground has just released their latest collection today as they have joined forces with the NBA for a limited-edition capsule. The timing of the collection is perfect since it is back-to-school season and features 13 different NBA teams and seven different players including Stephen Curry, Lebron James, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kristaps Porzingis, Damian Lillard and Jeremy Lin.

All of the NBA x Sprayground backpacks feature a clean, contemporary take on the most famous team logos in NBA history, while the player backpacks focus on iconic basketball names from each city, their jersey numbers and their personalities. As Sprayground’s creator David Ben-David explains it, “Each bag is designed to tell the story of its city or player.” For example, the NBA Nets Pick Up Game backpack was designed with images of gold chains to represent Brooklyn’s swag, while the NBA James Baroque backpack used Lebron James’ nickname “the King” as inspiration for its lavish Renaissance style design.

The NBA backpacks come in the DLX or Cargo silhouettes which make them the ultimate grab and go accessory for the athletic and fashion savvy customer who is always on the go. All of the backpacks are priced from $60-$90, depending on the style and can be purchased online now at sprayground.com. One of the best things about Sprayground’s products is that they are all designed in limited quantities and are never re-released, making them collectibles among brand followers. So if you’re an NBA fan who is in need of a new backpack, I would head over to their site right now before these bad boys start selling out.
