RUNNING MAN: The Triumphant Return of Forrest Gump’s Nikes

Today we have big news in the category of iconic running shoes from film.

No, it’s not about Marty McFly’s sneakers.

Remember how Mr. Forrest Gump ran for a really (really) long time? Well, he did this thanks to the help of the Nike Cortez shoes (1972) he got from Jenny.  Sadly, they were taken off the market. (We all remember where ewe were when that happened.) But starting on February 28th, the movie lovers at Nike are bring the shoes back and they’re starting with the blue and red colors that Forrest wore.

To celebrate their triumphant return, we’re highlighting the iconic scene when Forrest went for “a little run.”

Take a look (and don’t forget to stretch.)
