From Our Friends at Who What Wear: 4 Cool Ways to Style the Nike Sneakers L.A. Girls Love

Lauren Eggertsen is an associate editor at Who What Wear. As a huge fan of trending items, under-the-radar brands and timeless basics, she does not take the search for that perfect pair of sneakers lightly. Nike Cortez sneakers have everything she looks for in that ideal pair, and she’s about to tell you exactly why.

If there’s one sneaker I’ve noticed the cool girls of L.A. wearing as of late, it’s the Nike Cortez. But since the shoe is inherently quite sporty, it may seem a bit intimidating to style, which is exactly what I’m here to help you with today. I clearly love these sneakers (I own how many pairs now?), so, in an effort to remain somewhat unbiased, I decided to also bring you street-style images of cool girls around the world wearing them.

Ahead, you’ll find four of the most forward yet approachable ways to style Nike Cortezes. With outfit combinations ranging from floral dresses to statement trousers, my roundup has a look or a style tip in here for everyone, guaranteed. Basically, if there’s one pair of sneakers you invest in this season, I recommend it be these for their flattering shape, level of comfort and overall stylish qualities.

Olivia Kim Runs the World—with Nordstrom x Nike

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Olivia Kim will run your town. Her fitness-first dedication is admirable no matter what, but when you understand just how very, very much she travels, it’s downright humbling. Put it this way: when people ask her where she lives, she just sort of laughs. Yet no matter where she goes, she laces up her Nikes and moves.

Running, hiking, yoga, surfing—it’s all a way of life for our VP of Creative Projects, so the recent launch of Nordstrom x Nike boutiques in Toronto and Seattle (Chicago, we’re coming soon) are very close to her heart. She curated them; she believes in them; she shops them. For example, when it came time for her and her crew to take a break from Paris Fashion Week for We Run Paris, a Nike 10K, they did it in Nordstrom x Nike

While we’re all about that sneakers-with-skirts and sweats-with-ankle-boots life, there’s certainly something to be said for the straightforward and traditional use of trainers and leggings too. We also think it’s pretty much impossible not to be inspired by Olivia’s “Why I Run” feature on Nike.com and our images of the gang crossing the Seine in those chic swooshes.
