Observant movie buffs and sneaker heads will recognize the Nike Cortez Classic OG Leather from Tom Hanks' 1994 film Forrest Gump. The brand has brought back this classic model for those with a taste for the vintage.

The overall look of the Nike Cortez Classic OG Leather remains relatively the same. The low-tops feature the same colors as the one in the movie with a white upper, red swoosh and blue trim on the midsole. It stays true and vintage to the original design, but there is a slight difference. According to Streething, the current model has "a slimmer profile and a heel tab at the back." These are minor modifications, so authenticity really isn't affected too much. Stats for Throwback Hollywood Kicks Trending: Older & Buzzing
