Prominent in international street scenes since the early 80's, the Nike Cortez is a true star classic and takes the reign for defining retro. Featuring a durable bottom and a lightweight nylon upper for easygoing comfort,the Cortez is clean cut and can accommodate any outfit.
If you haven't read my sister Natalie's blog, you really should. I have the funniest sisters ever, and she writes incredibly well.
So she talked about a story where her first pair of Nike's were mismatched, because my mom found them on clearance somewhere, and how I stuffed my feet into them, although they were a few size too small for me. Remember, mom bought these for Nat.
And yes, it's true, my feet are a slave to fashion. I have never cared about how shoes feel, just how they look. Case in point, I found these snakeskin stilettos this week, bought them, and almost fell twice at work. They were so hard to walk in - I bought them a little bit because my foot looked better in them. Man, by the time I walked out of the door at work, I almost took them off. I had to walk so slow as to not have them flip off and me biff it. Yes I always have been, and will be, a slave to fashion. Just don't look at any pics from my "ugly" era. Years 1994-1996/7. WOOF!
So, Nat's blog had me thinking about my first pair of Nike's. I remember when they were the coolest thing EVER! Well, when I finally got my first pair, they were from Grandpa Savage. He worked at a spa or something and somebody left their shoes and I was the sweet benefactor of their forgetfullness. I really felt like I was somebody after that day.
My second pair of Nike's were pink - had an odd style - but hey, they were Nike's, right? I bought them with my own money from Pick n' Save. Now that I think about it, I don't think Pick n' Save would have Nike's so I'm sure they were Mike's.
