Ordered a 10.5 online. Way too small. Took them to store for exchange. Size 11 worn all weekend & my feet wanted nothing to do with them. Back to store for refund & received only partial credit. Apparently shipping is not refundable. Never again will I buy shoes online from these crooks.

      Comments about Nike Cortez Basic Leather:

      Cortez are some of the worst made Nike's on the market, they are cheaply made, they run very small, and are very narrow, fit really funny, crease very deep and often tear in the creases. The sole may also separate from shoe itself, so do not run in them!

          Comments about Nike Cortez Basic Leather:

          The shoe has the classic look that I love, but it was too narrow around the toe. I wear a 14 and most of my shoes fit comfortably. While I like the look of the shoe, I would never wear these on a day if I knew I'd be on my feet for an extended period.
