Nike introduces Tom Sachs' latest footwear collab.
Tom Sachs and Nike have a new space-themed sneaker collab in the works, following up the 2012 NikeCraft Mars Yard and last July's Mars Yard 2.0 release. This time around, Nike is taking Sachs' ties with NASA a bit further by creating a moon boot style piece of footwear dubbed the Mars Yard Over Shoe.
“The Mars Yard Overshoe, its nickname is the March Yard — for March, the worst month of the year. It is wet, your feet are wet the whole month of March,” says Tom Sachs.
Per Nike: "While wearing the Overshoe all the way up fends off the elements, rolling it down makes inside, heated spaces tolerable. The duality serves well for the annoyances of a New York March, and allows chic navigation of street, subway and fashion week. A new tread pattern, created by a small sipping at the highpoints of the outsole, is designed from a mastery of New York's winters too."
In celebration of the London premiere of Sachs’ latest film Paradox Bullets, a limited release of the Nike Mars Yard Overshoe will be available October 11 at DSM London. (Product available in-store only via online raffle. Follow DSM for details). A global release date for the shoe will be announced in the coming months.
