They include many icons from Nike, which, after all, has a mega-rich history.
In this article, we will introduce you to the most important products from this collection, which have been making Nike history for decades by bringing it to the pedestal of sportswear and lifestyle. They have become undisputed style icons that many companies around the world have modeled after.

Sneaker with an amazing history, which celebrated its 40th birthday in 2012. The tegpo model is named after the Spanish conquistador, conqueror of Mexico Hernán Cortés. It was Nike’s first classic cross-country shoe, created in ’72 just before the Munich Olympics in Germany, its creator was none other than Mr. Bowermann. He surprised everyone at the time with the shape and execution of the upper, lightness and slim shape which was a revolution in those years!!! Characteristic of the Cortez is the “herringbone” sole, which provides a solid base. The first Cortezes were made of nylon, but over time this one was also made of leather, which is sure to appeal to fans of this classic. Cortezes are still running kilometers on the streets and treadmills!!! They are also part of the cult film Forrest Gump, in which Tom Hanks in the title role ran across America in these very shoes :-).
