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 was 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 Mowabb, Kim puts her own spin on the shoe originally designed as a running and hiking hybrid, turning it into a time capsule of NYC-inspired sneaker culture. Her contrarian approach to fashion creates a sneaker that can take you off trail in OG street style. The teal and red colourway nods to early rave culture, while the brown/black upper code-switches to '90s New York hip-hop. In Olivia's own words, this is "the perfect hiking sneaker for a club kid".
