To celebrate the Mexican festival – The Day of the Dead, Nike has launched a special edition of Cortez Basic Leather SE.


The Dead of the Dead is a traditional festival in Mexico to memorize their family and friends who have passed away. In the multi-days holiday, they will pray for the dead ones. Yet, they do not consider the process as sadness as they believe the dead ones will celebrate with them together.

The Cortez Basic Leather SE features dark full-grain leather. The white swoosh serves as a contradiction and makes the sneakers more eye-catching. And the whole sneaker is covered with orange lining, which adds a mysterious touch.


The black and orange combination reminds us of the Halloween. And in fact, the sneakers will be available on 15th Oct, and the price will be 65 GBP.
