Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard Overshoe Release Date

As an artist, the greatest thing Nike has given me is the ability to expand my creative process and think ‘these are not constraints, these are other ways of thinking.

Tom Sachs praises in partners at Nike, describing his NikeCraft venture with the brand as a 50/50 process, fueled by production he says only he and Nike are capable of. The latest project from the NikeCraft range is the Mars Yard Overshoe, a snow boot-like silhouette designed to combat the elements during winter, while retaining its fashion appeal beyond.

Through rigorous wear-testing of his own, Sachs expanded on what was established with the Mars Yard 2.0, providing solutions where he felt necessary with this weather-ready-silhouette. Tech such as Dyneema, a strong fiber used in boat rope and sails, is employed to protect the wearer’s feet while worn.
