Union and Nike has big plans for 2022 with another silhouette surfacing of the duo’s work, which will feature the classic Nike Cortez.

2022 already looks to be a huge year for Nike with another Union x Nike collection being revealed for a future date. While we’ve been monitoring their Dunk Low series closely which is now up to three total colorways, the duo has also worked up a Cortez collection which is true to Union Los Angeles’ roots.

Featured in two colorways of either wheat/red or black/aqua, the silhouette is renovated with new overlay systems and materials like a canvas textile base. The sneaker is also highlighted by UNLA tags and the Union silhouette logo across the heels. Another new addition to the Cortez as well is a cork insole piece that gives off a fresh unique vibe.


The Union x Nike Cortez collection is expected to drop in 2022 via Union’s personal website and Nike.com. While as of now there are only two colorways that have surfaced, make sure to keep it locked to JustFreshKicks for updates as that can change rather quickly thanks to Union and Nike’s dominance.
