If you want to take a vintage shoe and make it a millennial must-have, employing a Hadid sister to sport the footwear is a sure-fire way to do that, and that's exactly what Nike has done to celebrate the 45th anniversary of its famous Cortez shoe. 

First released in 1972, with the women's version - Senorita Cortez - following in 1974, the shoe has been worn by athletes and style stars alike and was the brand's best-selling shoe in the 1970s.

To celebrate its milestone anniversary, Nike is re-releasing the shoe in its original 1972 form and has tapped Bella Hadid for its campaign (which you can see in the gallery above). With a cool, '70s-inspired vibe, Bella can be seen wearing the shoes, with their distinctive red tick and blue lined midsole, with flared jeans, mid-calf socks and a slinky slip dress. Speaking with W in March, Bella said of the shoe, "This one is about as classic as you can get. Nike's real OG and I wear it with anything - dressed up or down."

Bella signed on with Nike in November 2016 and this marks her first solo campaign for the sportswear giant.
