Phil Knight's best-selling memoir Shoe Dog will reportedly inspire an upcoming trio of Nike Cortez '72s

According to @pyleaks, a quickstrike release featuring three colorways of the Cortez '72 is scheduled to arrive later this year. While there are currently no photos of the pairs, the "White/Varsity Red/Game Royal" color combination suggests that the pairs could look similar to the OG colorway of the runner know for its appearance in the 1994 film Forrest Gump

Expect all three colorways to arrive at select retailers in July 2019 for $120 each. It is worth noting that a Shoe Dog documentary is slated to release on Netflix in the future and could possibly tie-in to this special release. Stay tuned as more information regarding the Shoe Dog x Nike Cortez '72 pack becomes available.

UPDATE (06/11): Initial images of the upcoming Shoe Dog x Nike Cortez '72 pack have surfaced, courtesy of @spicychickenwings on Instagram. Each pair is dressed in the OG "White/Varsity Red/Game Royal" colorway with alternating logos donning the side panel. One will feature a slim Swoosh, while the other two showcase Peregrine Falcon and Dimension Six logos that represented two other names considered by Nike's founders Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman before they settled on the iconic title we know today. 

The trio of retro designs is still expected to release some time in July 2019.
