Nike Cortez by A.L.C.

August 15, 2017 - Nike has partnered with Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C. on a Nike Cortez inspired by the rich palette of neutrals found in A.L.C.'s Fall 2017 collection. Additional details include brass lace tips, snakeskin on the heel, inspirational quotes on the foot beds and longer laces to tie around the wearer's 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."

The Nike Cortez by A.L.C. is available in three colorways starting August 25 exclusively at Nike x Nordstrom sneaker boutiques and Nordstrom The Grove. Starting August 28, they will be available on and Nike+ SNKRS, as well as at Net-A-Porter, select Nordstrom stores and A.L.C.

The shoe has a new bootie-like fit, with a cushioned drop-in midsole and added cushioning in the ankle.

New Converse Mountain Club Capsule Delivers Style and Utility

November 05, 2018 - Before a canvas sneaker stepped onto a basketball court and before the Chuck Taylor All Star became a globally recognized symbol of self-expression, Marquis Converse founded the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in 1908. Ten rubber galoshes, Converse’s first products, were produced on April 30, 1909. In the beginning, the company also created triple tread tires, leather duck hunting boots and hockey pucks.

During the World War II, Converse, like many American companies, shifted production efforts to supporting the troops. Its rubber origins contributed to the manufacturing of rubber boots, canvas training boots, weatherized gear and reversible camouflage ponchos. 

The utility of these heritage items shaped the new Converse Mountain Club capsule. Specifically, Converse was inspired by the Extreme Cold Weather Boot, a rubber military boot developed in the 1950s and once produced by Converse. 

Using this utility design lens, the new collection reinterprets three classic Converse styles — the Chuck Taylor All Star, One Star and Fastbreak — adding GORE-TEX® technology to make the shoes waterproof. The result: The Mountain Club line is at once stylish and functional.

Converse Mountain Club is available from Converse and at select retailers November 8.
