Carla’s Nikes #1: White

Carla Tortelli always wears Nikes. First up to bat, white.

Disclaimer: I am neither a sneaker collector nor a Nike expert. While I will admit that I bought a pair of Nike dunks once in college “because all the cool kids were doing it,” I will also admit that every time I wore them I felt like the fraud I was.

Circa 2006 (dont judge):

Now that I have proven my utter lack of good Nike judgment, you can rest assured that the following research on Carla’s Nikes comes from a few more habitual sneaker wearers who have kindly lent their expert opinion.

If you are looking for a modern alternative, scroll down. If you would like to get your hands on a pair of Nikes just like Carla’s, your best bet will be Ebay, Etsy, and other sneaker nerd sites that I know nothing about. Remember, these could be from any year before 1982. Here are a few keywords you can search to find styles similar to Carla’s:

Nike Oceania
Nike Cortez
Nike Waffle Trainer or Racer (sometimes mistaken for the Cortez)
Nike Electra
Nike Diablo
Nike Montreal Racers
Nike Rio
Nike Mieka
Nike Long Jump II

And finally, some new white sneakers:
