nike sneakers womens black Nike co-founder/chairman emeritus Phil Knight‘s “Shoe Dog” memoir is a fascinating look into both Knight’s life and the early days of his company, so the Beaverton Brand is now paying homage to their genesis and the book itself with a three-pack of special takes on the Nike Cortez.

The Nike-centric pair features designer Carolyn Davidson’s original slim swoosh on its side, while the Dimension Six makeup opts for a blue midfoot piece overlaid with a red circle and text logo.
