Introducing the Tom Sachs x NikeCraft Mars Yard 2.0 - a vintage silhouette brought back from the archives and remastered for contemporary comfort.
Tom Sachs is a US based artist known for his contemporary and abstract pieces. Working alongside Nike, Sachs attempts to create a work of art that is functional as it is striking. While it may appear to be a collectors item, this is strictly to be worn and enjoyed. The shoe box arrives with the following message:
“These shoes are only valid if worn, and worn to death by you. Posers need not apply.”
Back in 2012, Tom Sachs and Nike linked up to introduce the coveted NikeCraft Mars yard, a shoe for Tommaso Rivellini, a mechanical engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The coveted kicks quickly became a highly sought-after commodity and an instant classic thanks to their retrofuturistic design, going for thousands of dollars on eBay.
Similar to the 2012 release, this pair showcases a vintage inspired look throughout. Cream coloured mesh hits the sidewall and also appears across the toe while premium suede offers a nice contrast in a deep shade of brown. The vintage swoosh sits across the sidewall in a deep red colourway and soft fleece makes an appearance to the inner lining.
