A shoe with a heritage going back to 1968 as the Tiger Corsair, but it with a name change, it was the 1970s before the Nike Classic Cortez Leather trainers really made a mark.

Actually, the word 'leather' wasn't in that original name, with this being a premium version of the 1972 running shoe, offered with black leather upper, red leather swoosh branding to the sides and a two-toned foam sole plus a woven Nike brand tab to the tongue.

You can pick up a pair for £65.
