If you thought that Supreme knows how to play the game of hype, then you’re definitely right! However, there’s another brand that seems to be a very strong competitor. Although it’s been under the radar for many outside Europe, that won’t be the case anymore! Why? Because the new Corteiz Nike Air Max 95 put the British brand on the international map. If you haven’t heard of the brand before, don’t fret. We’re gonna take a look at the brand’s history and the kicks it brought us!
Corteiz RTW – A London Niche for Streetwear Fans
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen any type of streetwear and sneaker riots. You know, ever since the online drops and raffles became a thing, drops became more orderly. However, it seems like Corteiz decided to bring back that type of hype in 2017! Corteiz RTW (Rules The World) was founded in 2017 by British-Nigerian Clint Ogbenna or just Clint419 on Instagram. The dude started small, even his Instagram account was private.
You see, Corteiz is as far as underground brands could go. The only way you’d find the account was by knowing about it by word-of-mouth. In other words, you needed to be one of the elite to know when the items with the Alcatraz logo will drop. Why? Because contrary to Supreme’s weekly drops, Corteiz drops happen at random times! If you wanna know more about the brand, check this out.
The Corteiz Nike Story Arc – From Feuds to Friends!
Before we get to the kicks, we gotta check out the history between the brands. It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows between Nike Corteiz. In fact, in 2021, Nike filed a lawsuit against Corteiz because the name is very similar to Nike’s Cortez. The brands settled the lawsuit with Corteiz paying Nike a total sum of £1,850. And well, the past stayed in the past when they decided to join hands in 2023!
Corteiz Nike Air Max 95
March is Nike’s month and we’re just living through it. With Air Max Day drawing near and many other drops coming, we can barely save up! But if you are a Londoner, then you probably dropped some money on March 10. You see the Corteiz Nike Air Max 95 dropped exclusively on the brand’s site for people to cop, and you bet they did. The kicks look really cool in different shades of olive, in addition to the Corteiz branding.
In addition to their good looks, the kicks are actually worth $415 on average in resale! Now, if you missed the original drop, don’t worry. A global release via Nike SNKRS is probably gonna happen soon, and the kicks will retail for $190. Moreover, there could be more colorways in the works, but we’ll see about that. Anyway, in order to cop a couple of pairs (or more), you’re gonna need the help of a good Nike bot!
But why limit yourself to a Nike bot when you can have an all-in-one bot? A sneaker bot like the upcoming NSB3 will open so many doors for you, from Shopify, all the way to Nike SNKRS! That’s not all, because the new upgrade will also bring an AI Captcha solver that’ll make your life easier. So go on and get your copy today to witness the future of sneaker botting! Godspeed
