Following the overwhelming success of his adult-sized footwear collaborations with Nike, Tom Sachs has announced that kids and toddler sizing are next for the Mars Yard 2.0 and Mars Yard Overshoe.

For Sachs, the inspiration behind the product expansion was personal. “Bottom line, my son, Guy Louis Armstrong Sachs, is on the sculpture team now,” he says. “He’s an important part of the team and he’s got his French work smock, his 10 bullets onesie and, now, he has his Mars Yards.” The sneakers were originally teased on Sachs’ Instagram earlier this year, but they have now been given an official release date.

In true Sachs fashion, the artist and designer experimented during the design process in an effort to infuse performance details specifically designed for tiny feet. The resulting shoes feature flexible soles and easy on/off Velcro collars. “The shoe is very, very flexible and that’s what you ultimately want when developing a strong new member of the team — you don’t want a lot of structure,” he continues.

Even though Sachs made noticeable child-approved updates to the Mars Yard 2.0 and Mars Yard Overshoe, he did carry over key elements from his now iconic silhouettes, including colorway, performance materials, and both shoes’ recognizable oversized pull tabs on the tongue and heel. The toddler sizes carry a bit more detail than the crib sizes, including a sole more closely related to the original shoe.

The Mars Yard and Mars Yard Overshoes will release October 9 in crib sizes 1C to 4C and toddler sizes 5C to 10C.

Elsewhere in footwear, the sacai x Nike Blazer Mid officially has a new release date.
