Nordstrom’s VP of Creative Projects, Olivia Kim, has collaborated with Nike on one of the most expansive collections to happen this year. Kim was inspired by her love of ’90s New York street style, influenced not just by the culture and aesthetics, but also by the fact that the majority of avant-garde sneaker designs of the time were made only for men and she could never find the ones she wanted in her size. With this in mind, she dubbed the series of five shoes “No Cover,” implying that they are available to everyone. On StockX, where the entire collection is available, the most sought-after shoe of the pack is currently the Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat,” with an average sale price of $252 USD.
The Olivia Kim x Nike “No Cover” capsule is comprised of nostalgia-evoking silhouettes, including the Air Force 1 Low, Air Mowabb, Air Footscape, Air Max 98 and the Air Jordan 4. The buzzed-about Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat” pays homage to Michael Jordan’s nickname, “Black Cat,” with a full triple black colorway and a rare use of pony hair to coat the upper. The collection also includes the Air Force 1 Low dressed in a neon and royal blue colorway with an eye jolting snakeskin swoosh and corduroy upper. The Air Footscape comes through as a classic design retro’d with a zebra-print upper and subtle ink accents. Rounding out the collection, the Air Mowabb is found in an orange/red-black colorway reflecting its “dual personalities” with bold new accents and the Air Max 98 nods to Kim’s love of dancehall music with a gradient of yellow, green and red. Collectively, the full pack provides an exciting balance of classic Nike silhouettes with Olivia’s signature style, while simultaneously harkening back to hip-hop and rave aesthetics from ’90s.
