Olympian Gabby Douglas Balances in A.L.C x Nike's New Cortez

She bends but doesn’t break.

Nike has partnered with Los Angeles fashion brand A.L.C. for a limited-edition Cortez collection. The classic silhouette arrives in pink, dark and white each enhanced with snakeskin on the heel and inspirational quotes on the foot beds. Wearers can string the laces all the way up to their calves thanks to the extra long laces supplied. The detailing on these pairs mimic A.L.C.’s 2017 fall collection, which will perfectly pair with this exclusive capsule. We see gold medalist Gabby Douglas posing in the pink iteration holding an unthinkable pose with the shoe following each bend of her foot.

Starting on August 25 the Cortez by A.L.C. will be available at Nike x Nordstrom sneaker boutiques. A wider launch will take place on August 28 on the SNKRS app, Nike, and other select retailers.

Take a closer look below.
