Charro And Mariachi Nike Cortez Concept Is Something We Didn’t Know That We Needed

The Nike Cortez has a long and storied history in the Latino community. They are something that every Latino can identify because we have all seen them many times. One company has taken them and given them a whole new feel and people need them made.

Paisa Boys are teasing everyone with a Charro/Mariachi-inspired Nike Cortez.

The design is pretty amazing. The Paisa Boys brand is unapologetic about who they are and what they want to do. They are using clothing to tell the story of the Chicano experience. The brand does not hold back and the products include the intricate and incredible designs from Mexican and Chicano culture.

Their website says they are sold out so it is worth paying attention when they start mentioning stuff.

Over the years, the brand has been giving the Chicano experience a voice through fashion. “Gringos Ilegales!” and “Fierro” are some of the terms that the Paisa Boys have used to bring some fashion choices that will definitely catch everyone’s attention.

The shoes are really something to behold.

That amount of detail is wonderful and not trying too hard. It is a well-done expression of Mexican and Chicano culture. Not to mention the physical manifestation of the experience of people who lives in the U.S., LA specifically, and spent time in Mexico with family. An American classic elevated and refined with a Mexican and Chicano lens.

People are already lining up to buy these shoes.

We just need to know how much and how do we pay. Guarantee that these shoes would be a massive hit. Companies have given us culturally relevant shoes before and they are beloved.

Legit, people just are ready for this kind of heat.

No one is ready for this kind of fire. There is no way to know that these were shoes that we needed. We never realized how amazing shoes like this could be and now that we’ve seen them, we can’t unsee it. How do we get these done? Do we petition? What are the steps?

Not being able to get these shoes is already bumming people out.

Like, for real. Feelings are already getting hurt. We need to be able to make these part of our wardrobe. What will it take, Nike?
