Intergalactic: Tom Sachs’ NikeCraft Mars Yard 2.0

The new and technologically improved Mars Yard sneaker has surfaced. Not to release until later this month, the hype surrounding this shoe has began to skyrocket.

The red tongue tabs include stronger stitching and the outsoles have been toned down to accommodate urban wear. Most importantly, the sneakers come with two insoles—mesh and cork.  All of the changes came after Sachs did long-term wear tests to discover specific weaknesses.

“People wear their scars with pride, so that’s another reason why we don’t polish the materials away—it’s storytelling. Rock your shoes dirty to say, ‘I wear my shoes. I do things with my life. Behold the evidence of my actions.” Nike Lab
