Nike and Tom Sachs is releasing the Mars Yard and Mars Yard Overshoe in kids sizes.
“The Sachs studio is a professional athletic team. Our sport is making sculpture. Nike makes performance products for the needs of championship athletes worldwide, and Nike makes our uniforms,” says Sachs. “Bottom line, my son, Guy Louis Armstrong Sachs, is on the sculpture team now. 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 shoes have a flexible sole and a Velcro collar. This supports young athlete movement and, important for Sachs, makes them simple to put on. “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 says.
Complete with custom box and the now customary color schemes, NikeCraft Mars Yard and Mars Yard Overshoes release October 9th in crib sizes (1C to 4C) and toddler sizes (5C to 10C).
