Nordstrom’s VP of creative projects, Olivia Kim, grew up in her native New York during a decade of neon, corduroy, and bold sneakers. Evoking nostalgic memories of bygone Nike silhouettes and colorways, Nordstrom’s Olivia Kim x Nike “No Cover” sneaker pack revisits her ’90s upbringing and the retro Swoosh pieces that she remembers so fondly. Comprising five brand new shoes, the pack is now available to shop at StockX.
Making use of the worshipped Air Force 1, the “No Cover” spin on the classic silhouette is a particular highlight of the joint-effort pack. Dialing the ’90s aesthetic up to the max, the shoe boasts a blue corduroy upper, a snakeskin Swoosh and heel, and is finished off with a glow in the dark outsole. Another standout piece is the “Black Cat” Air Jordan 4, an all-black sneaker that comes with a seldom-seen fur surface.
The Air Footscape silhouette was first released in 1996, and since then has garnered a somewhat cult status among sneakerheads. Injecting the shoe with an undeniable taste of the decade, the “No Cover” Footscape comes bearing zebra print in suede — ready for ’90s downtown New York.
