Nike Cortez The origin story

The Nike Cortez was designed back in 1972 by Nike’s co-founder Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight as one of the brand’s first shoes when the brand still operated under the name Blue Ribbon. They were made in collaboration with Japanese brand Onitsuka, and were built to be light and comfortable long-distance running shoes. The shoes were packed with never-seen-before thick foam midsoles which have now been updated to EVA foam, which provided more cushioning and support for athletes.

How it got its name was when Onitsuka sent over a shoe prototype in 1967 to Bowerman and Knight, and asked for suggestions for a name. The 1968 Olympic Games was scheduled to be held at Mexico, and Bowerman initially came up with the name “The Aztec” in commemoration of the event. However, Adidas had threatened to sue if the name was not changed as they had already released a shoe called the Azteca Gold. The duo then changed its name to “Cortez” after Hernán Cortés who conquered the Aztecs, an apt representation of what is to come as Nike took the world by storm with the Nike Cortez.
