They've had a long run, but Stan Smiths may finally have met their match, thanks to another throwback sneaker. The Nike Cortez was first released in 1972, innovating the running world with a simple body that's as durable as it is comfortable. Now, it's cropping up in fashion — and we're loving it for all the same reasons: the understated silhouette and comfy feel is en vogue. That's why we've been wearing our Stan Smiths for so long; though if you're itching to change it up, we suggest you shop these now before they're sold out everywhere.
The style's already gaining steam with the blogger community — and if you're wondering just how the shoe will pair with dresses or tailored pants, A.L.C.'s Pre-Fall '16 has some outfit ideas for you, too. Read on to start a whole new sneaker obsession, then shop them for yourself.
