Now that her deal with adidas has expired, Kylie Jenner is free to wear whatever sneakers she wants. The 22-year-old businesswoman has been taking full advantage of her free agency. Jenner has been spotted wearing an array of rare Nike kicks, ranging from Nike SB "What The" Dunks and the MF DOOM x Nike SB Dunk High to Colette x Air Jordan 1s.
Celebrities no doubt have connections that most of us will never be fortunate enough to obtain, but many have still been wondering how Kylie has gotten her hands on these hard-to-find sneakers. According to Complex, one of her plugs is the president and founder of Project BLITZ, Andre Ljustina, aka Croatian Style.
"[I've] Been collecting Nike SB dunks for 14 years. And been doing YouTube vids on them for 12 years. So safe to say I had a couple doubles and triples in the collection," says Fran "Franalations" Marchello. "[Andre Ljustina] came through on Christmas Eve and picked up the DOOMs, Purple Pigeons, and De La Highs. So don’t expect this to be the last time you see her in some SBs."

Dior x Nike Air Jordan 1
Kylie was most recently seen in the yet-to-be-released Dior x Nike Air Jordan 1, which she paired with an all-grey sweatsuit in true, self-isolation loungewear style. The sneaker was supposed to be released at some point in April, though Nike has not confirmed concrete release details just yet.
Stüssy x Nike SB Dunk Low “Cherry”
The Stüssy x Nike SB Dunk Low was released in 2005 and inspired by Neapolitan ice cream. Stüssy’s Robbie Jeffers designed the shoe, adding a cherry on the tongue tag as the literal cherry on top.
Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low
Dunk Low PRM QS
Nike SB x Travis Scott
Is anyone surprised that Kylie is wearing her baby daddy’s Dunk Low collaboration? Travis Scott has long been a fan of Nike SB and finally dropped his own take on the iconic model in early 2020.
Nike SB Dunk Low “What the Dunk”
The Nike SB Dunk Low “What the Dunk” blends some of the most iconic Nike SB colorways into one, mismatched design. The Frankenstein’s monster-esque color blocking may throw non-sneakerheads off, but the high retail price shows that this pair is highly-coveted among those that are in the know.
Off-White™ x Nike Air Jordan 5
Taking a break from Dunks, Kylie threw on a pair of Off-White™ x Nike Air Jordan 5s, though it looks like she decided not to customize them by cutting out the circular patches, as instructed by Virgil Abloh himself.
Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 “Sail”
Yet another one of Travis Scott’s Nike collaborations, this Air Force 1 low comes with replaceable Swooshes and a simple sail/gum sole design. It’s also one of the more affordable sneakers on this list.
Nike SB Dunk High “MF Doom”
This MF Doom sneaker is Nike SB’s second-ever hip hop collaboration and debuted in 2007. The sneaker features Doom-themed illustrations on the insoles and underneath the translucent outsole.
colette x Nike Air Jordan 1 Friends & Family
It’s a toss up in terms of which Air Jordan 1 on this list is more hyped. The Air Diors may be an official collaboration with one of the hottest Fashion House’s of the moment, but the colette Air Jordan 1 was a Friends & Family release only and is therefore much more limited.
