Nike Cortez as star guest at our Movie Night

After more than a year of 'house arrest', Netflix is now the Holy Grail, alongside Amazon Prime, Disney Plus and Sky. Thank goodness there's so much choice that even in twelve months we haven't been able to watch them all. It's more a case of "What are we watching today?" and after half an hour of searching for the right film or a good series, the popcorn is almost eaten up. Almost as bad as it used to be in the cinema, when you diligently munched on all your snacks in advance during the commercials. We come to the rescue and - how could it be otherwise - organise a Movie Night with a famous sneaker. Find out with us in which series and films the Nike Cortez is the star guest.

Run Forest, Run!

Of course you know this classic and if not, it's about time! Probably the most popular film featuring the Nike Cortez is Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks in perhaps his most famous role.

The American literary adaptation is based with considerable changes on the novel of the same name by Winston Groom. The film won a total of six Oscars and three Golden Globes. It tells the life story of an extraordinary boy growing up with his single mother in Georgia. Over the course of the film, viewers witness how he makes his way in life despite his limited intelligence, bullying at school, early leg braces and an unrequited love. A work that makes you think and reflect.

Stranger Things

Things are getting pretty strange in the Netflix series Stranger Things, which has become totally hyped. Set in the 80s, it has triggered a wave of nostalgia. In the series, Steve Harrington wears both the OG version and the 'Upside Down' colorway in black and white.

There are now three seasons, but on Youtube we can already watch the trailer for the fourth. The sequel will probably not appear on Netflix until 2022. In order not to spoil anything, just this much: The series is set in the 80s and in the fictional town of Hawkins in the US state of Indiana. The main roles are played by four friends and a mysterious girl with psychokinetic abilities who mixes up the suburban idyll.

Because the production was so successful, we were even able to enjoy three collabs on the Nike Cortez in recent years. So for the release of the third season, the Stranger Things X Nike 'Hawkins High' Pack came out and shortly after Nike released an 'Upside Down' collaboration.

The Wolf of Wall Street

For this film, but especially for this scene, Leonardo DiCaprio should definitely have won an Oscar, what do you think? Of course not only because he wears the Nike Cortez 🤓

The film is based on the book of the same name by stockbroker Jordan Belfort. The story begins when 20-year-old stockbroker Jordan Belfort founds his own company and quickly becomes successful. He becomes a star on Wall Street and a multi-millionaire. He enjoys his life of luxury to the full. He feels invincible, while his greed for more money won't let him go and drives him to the abyss.

This is exactly what Farrah Fawcett often does in the series 'Charlie's Angels', while this move is typical for the series.

Psst: In addition, the angels were often allowed to show off their special skills and were usually expected to wear as little clothing as the Prime broadcasting time at the time allowed.

You can watch the version of the story with
Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu on amazon Prime Video.
