Back in 1974, Nike was a relatively new company. Started in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports, they'd released their first shoes under the Nike name in 1971, and just trademarked the Swoosh in January of '74. One of their first shoes was the Cortez, a runner based on the Onitsuka Tigers that Blue Ribbon Sports had sold before branching into manufacturing their own. Anyways, we're not sure where the Super Cortez came into it, but what we do know is that this pair from 1974 recently sold for a cool $5,100. Go digging, you never know what you'll find.
