VF Corp (NYSE: VFC) has announced a partnership with Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) to launch a series of "pop up" shops in the fashion retailer's stores.

The partnership launched August 5 at eight stores and online, and will be called "Pop in @ Nordstroms x Vans." With the help of Nordstrom's vice president of creative projects, Olivia Kim, Vans is producing exclusive shoes, apparel, and accessories under the new partnership.

"We wanted to create something that feels special, unique, and exclusive to Nordstrom. Sneakers don't have to be so casual anymore – it's a fashion statement at this point. I think by using these elements that seem high-end, we're elevating the shoes even further," said Kim in a recent BallerStatus article.
