 I noticed alot cheerleaders rock Cortez.

I only rock nylon, saw a pair a Gabriel brothers in Neutral Grey with white swoosh for like 30 bills. 1/2 size too small tho.

I didn't know these dropped. Anyone know where I can find a pair for a fair price? I see they're on eBay for like $150, willing to pay that amount but not at the moment. I want to rock these for Memorial Day or the 4th to represent my favorite fictional American Hero, Forrest Gump.

Any info on these will be greatly appreciated.

i had pairs as a kid and pairs as a teenager when i was into the whole bangin %*!#.

The Cortez brings back memories for me. I rocked those for a solid 2 years in middle school.

Gotta say this is one of my favorite shoes. Growing up in Los Angeles during the 80s- mid 90s it seemed that everyone had a pair of Cortez. Totally a gang related shoe. All my boys had at least 3 pair. It just sucks that the price has jumped so high for such a simple shoe. Anyway, cortez are dope and I still rock them, just at sale price. Haahaa
