The Olivia Kim x Nike Air Mowabb ‘No Cover’ Revisits an OG ColourwayRelease: 31 October 2019
Sneaker Freaker’s resident catalogue nerd is relishing the official Nike images of the upcoming Olivia Kim x Nike Air Mowabb. As part of the ‘No Cover’ collaborative collection, this colourway is actually quite close to an OG Air Mowabb Plus edition from circa 1992.

The fact the VP of Creative Projects at Nordstrom has included this in her collection means there is some deep archive digging. Sure, there are some tweaks to the panels here and there – it’d just be a retro if it was a one-for-one remake. Additional adjustments include extra splatter on the midsole, a mini-Swoosh on the mudguard, and rotated ankle branding.
The Mowabb, along with the rest of the ‘No Cover’ collection, is due to release in the US on October 31, and globally on November 8. Get excited.
