For those who have their eyes on something a little more wearable for the everyday however, these new pastel Cortez sneakers are for you.
Arriving in “Elemental Rose,” these kicks have a soft suede upper in that stunning in-between pink and purple tone. The dusky hue sweeps over everything from the Swoosh on the sidewalls to the laces and stitching throughout. Light Nike branding stands out on the tongue and heel – a welcome, albeit subtle contrast to the tonal look. The slick unit sits upon a layered midsole that starts off white and ends with a creamy beige shade on the serrated outsole, completed by a splice of the pastel shade in the middle.
