Since the launch of the first NikeCraft Mars Yard in 2012, this futuristic style from Nike and Tom Sachs has garnered great acclaim, becoming one of the most coveted sneaker releases. With a rugged, can-do attitude and obsession for futuristic, yet natural materials, American artist Tom Sachs was a natural collaborator for Nike. Over the course of his research for his SPACE PROGRAM 2.0 exhibit, Sachs became increasingly inspired by the expertise of NASA scientists and their work to advance human potential. This passion was channeled together with both Sachs' illustrations and his tongue-in-cheek sensibility to create the Mars Yard.
Five years after the original release, Sachs and a team of Nike designers have continued to study and refine the shoe—analyzing original laboratory simulations and the real-world performance to bring the shoe even closer to perfection. From these continuous, long-term trials, the Mars Yard 2.0 is born.
The new model brings together a warp-knit tricot mesh upper, stronger X-box stitching and two new insoles made of mesh and cork (for sockless wear). These insoles further underscore the shoe's versatility, combined with Sachs' signature illustrations of knot-tying and universal elements, to give a nod to Sachs' contemplation of real-world sensibilities behind the design.
With the Mars Yard 2.0, Sachs continues his footwear experiment. The shoes are true to form—materials are not dyed, the practical structures like seams, stitches and joints are exposed and embraced. Equally celebrated is the wear, tear and dirtiness which will continuously accumulate through the years, coming to embody the stories of continued adventure in this new 2.0 form.
