Nike’s latest collaboration with Tom Sachs for the Mars Yard Overshoe is expected to hit the streets sometime in the middle of May.
Nike and contemporary artist Tom Sachs have had the Mars Yard Overshoe project in the works for the past 11 years now. A lot of time and effort was put into crafting this shoe and considering that the Mars Yard Overshoe 2.0 wound up receiving the highest resale price for any other shoe in the history of Nike, it was all worth the time.
The shoe was originally produced and released in 2012 before Tom Sachs and Nike decided to introduce an update for the sneaker in 2017. Materials like Dyneema – a strong fiber used to create ropes for boats – were created and re-inforced to make the new version of the Mars Yard Overshoe even stronger and more durable as a boot hybrid. Originally, this shoe was released merely for a limited release back in October. The shoes were expected and rumored to hit the market once again this past January for a wider release, but when January came, the updated Mars Yard Overshoe was nowhere in sight on the shelf.
However, Sole Collector received a reliable word from a close retail source who confirmed to them that the shoe from Sachs and Nike collaboration will finally be making its wide release next month in May. More specifically, the expected rumored release date will be on May 10. Further details suggest that the Mars Yard Overshoe will be releasing widely at a price of $550, the same price it was rumored to release for when January was the original rumored month.
Neither Nike or Sachs have confirmed or denied these reports, but considering how reliable Sole Collector’s source is, just keep an eye out for these shoes to hit the market at select retailers on May 10.
