gangsters. Even though it is a old shoe
, it is still very popular among Chicano gangs all over California. When wearing
, you don't have to say you gang

shoes, don't wear them. You will regret it.
Stranger1: "Hey, look at that guy. He is wearing cortez
's. I heard the Nike Cortez
is affiliated with Mexican gangs. What gang do you think he belongs too?"
Stranger2: "I think he is a Norteno. Look at the Nike Swoosh, it's red"
Stranger1: "Yeah, you're right."
