    The Tom Sachs Mars Yard Overshoe reflects function, the shoe is built with emphasised protective qualities, with the main theme focused around harsh weather conditions. “The Mars Yard Overshoe, its nickname is the March Yard — for March, the worst month of the year. It is wet, your feet are wet the whole month of March,” says Tom Sachs. Sachs said the shoe is a consequence of trial and error and striving for continuous innovation, the original Nike Mars Yard came about as a result of extensive product testing, the Mars Yard Overshoe is no different. His approach to design is centred around pushing the boundaries and removing the perceived constraints in his creative process, perceived challenges simply generate alternative solutions.

    The shoes multiplicity in form - as evidenced by Frank Ocean, who cut the outer body to reveal the Mars Yard 2.0 underneath - or its standard 'astronaut' body provides opportunity through variation. The white upper is made from Dyneema®️ enforced nylon, the interior lining of which is tricot nylon. Dyneema®️ is a fiber that is known to be exceptionally durable. The shoe has additional accessories such as magnetic buckles for fastening, as well as Nifco chords to fasten the nylon upper. The inner body of the shoe is a Mars Yard 2.0 with subtle variations such as an extended tongue pull tab with a nylon donning strap. The TPU midsole is dressed in a blue overlay, with a ridged toeguard emphasising the protective qualities of the shoe, whilst the black sole is constructed from sticky rubber that aims to enhance traction.
