A native New Yorker who came of age in the ’90s, Nordstrom VP of Creative Projects Olivia Kim has coveted iconic sneakers her entire life. The ’90s were a golden age for creative expression in downtown NYC and for wider sneaker culture, and Kim lived and breathed it all. For the No Cover collection, she curated a capsule of nostalgic NYC-inspired OG Nike silhouettes that she couldn’t get her hands on growing up, bringing to life what was previously unattainable in her own life.
For this special-edition Air Force 1, inspiration came from NYC’s rave scene in the ’90s, combining funky, unexpected materials for a loud look that’s made for dancing the night away. The upper is completely covered in a classic blue corduroy, and is accented by a neon snakeskin heeltab and swoosh, which was adapted from 1996’s Snake AF1. In these AF1’s though, you don’t even have to carry your own glow sticks to the rave—the sneaker’s midsole and outsole are glow-in-the-dark, swinging everyone’s attention to your suddenly radiant feet.
