With Tom Sachs‘ futuristic Nike Mars Yard Overshoe set to receive a limited restock, we opted to provide a closer look at the covetable space-age shoe. Thanks to Flightclub, we now have detailed shots of the function-focused sneaker, along with all the high-end details.
Retaining core elements of the ultra-limited Mars Yard 2.0, the Mars Yard Overshoe upgrades the previous silhouette with a host of industrial details. Most notably, the shoe is enclosed in a waterproof Dyneema shroud, complete with adjustable pull tabs at the top for an adjustable fit. Sturdy Fidlock closure keeps the foot in place, while a treaded rubber outsole ensures anti-slip traction.
An original Mars Yard sneaker is hidden inside, complete with padded tongue for ankle support. Both cork or mesh sockliners come with the Overshoe, further denoted by text printed atop each removable insole. All four pieces include different illustrations of knots, elemental composition lists and even the solar system, underlining the scientific edge that informs much of Sachs’ work.
Take a close look at the technical footwear above and prepare for the Mars Yard Overshoe’s re-release on May 9.
Most recently, Sachs released a grey iteration of his Shop Chair.
