No single connection between a shoe and a city is as strong as Los Angeles’ embrace of the Nike Cortez, originally released in 1972. That bond continues with the Nike LA Cortez, the latest Cortez collaboration between Nike and Nike athlete Maria Sharapova.
Combining her favorite sneaker with her favorite city — and the place she calls home — Sharapova, who has always had a strong eye for design and fashion, says she wanted to create a shoe that captured "LA’s high style." The color palette was inspired by LA’s laid-back vibes and the earthy hues of a West Coast sunrise. Playing off of Sharapova’s childhood interest in calligraphy, the shoe utilizes refined design lines for an off-court elegance. Thoughtful attention to craft and detail brings dimensional layering with premium suedes, leathers and soft gold accents.
"I love how it’s minimal and understated in certain ways, yet there’s so much attention to detail with the finishes, materials and even color," says Sharapova. "I was inspired by my morning walks along the coast on my way to practice, and I think we captured that peaceful essence in this shoe."
The Nike LA Cortez will launch March 1 at Nordstrom x Nike Sneaker Boutiques and on nordstrom.com, and March 2 on the SNKRS app, nike.com and at Nike The Grove and Nike Santa Monica.

The Nike Roshe, an iconic shoe known for its ultimate comfort and breathability, was first introduced in 2012. Six years later, the silhouette is retooled for the links.
The key feature making the Roshe G course-ready is a pressure-mapped outsole that targets high-wear areas, which gives the shoe increased durability and traction in key zones. It's also wearable off-course, which reinforces the comfort pedigree, along with the new design's long-range durability and versatility.
Sport-specific upper enhancements have also been made. For instance, the mesh is thoughtfully wrapped with a synthetic overlay integrated with the laces to give golfers a locked-down feel.
The Nike Roshe G is available February 1 in men’s, women’s and youth sizes on nike.com and at select retailers.

Going back to its Oregon roots, Nike SB has teamed up again with local Northwest brand Poler to deliver the ultimate laid-back Janoski.
Influenced by the idea of “business in the front, party in the back,” the soft blue premium suede upper paired with the pink sole gives this shoe a bit of flare. A distinctive Poler-designed character embossed on the heel pays homage to the brand's roots and the thought of the everyman’s approach to skateboarding.
The debossed Janoski logo on the tongue and the flattened seams streamline the fitted look.
