If this isn't the craziest story of the day then I don't know what is. Last week Nike casually let the world know they were introducing some classic colorways of the Nike Air Cortez. Naturally, sneakers bring back special moments in our lives and with this Cortez it reminded us of Forrest Gump.
For obvious reasons Nike couldn't officially label this Cortez the "Forrest Gump," but us blogs have been giving nicknames and telling stories about sneakers for decades. So when the official release date was announced it was just as important to report on the significance of the shoes.
Retail for the Nike Air Cortez "Forrest Gump" was $100 and it released on February 28th. Here we are only 24 hours later and these sneakers are selling on eBay For $250. We're not talking about Air Jordans, Yeezys, or some signature shoe from an athlete, we talkin' bout CORTEZ!
The average going rate for Nike Air Cortez's is about $50 - $70 on eBay. I've personally never seen the hype on a Cortez so crazy, but that's the beauty of the game. You just never know.
Shout out to @Henz0 for bringing this up to us.
