Nike, Tom Sachs collaborates for General Purpose Shoe release
Nike and Tom Sachs created the Mars Yard shoe that was designed specifically for scientists and space explorers who are aiming to visit and walk on Mars. They made the footwear through the NikeCraft project, and they are collaborating again, this time for the General Purpose Shoe.
This is the type of footwear that can be used every day, and it has some features that are akin to the Mars Yard and Mars Yard 2.0 shoe models. The General Purpose Shoe was said to have been designed with the athletes, artists, and similar personalities in mind, as per Sneaker News.
There are similarities between the General Purpose Shoe hand Mars Yard footwear, and the important thing is that both models are stylish and hardwearing. The former is also breathable enough to be used regularly and provides protection to the foot when it is raining as well.
On the whole, the General Purpose Shoe is intended for the sneaker owner to tell their own story through wear and tear. It has straps to comfortably hold the foot, while a three-piece molded cup sole gives stability and extra comfort.
Generally, the GPS materials and construction were carefully picked to provide good support and comfort in well-priced footwear. The Nike General Purpose Shoe will be sold for $109.99 and can be purchased starting June 10 at nikecraft.com. Men’s and women’s sizes are available.
“I got involved with Nike in the beginning because we wanted to make a sculpture that everyone could wear. It’s a tool for everyday life; it's democratic,” Tom Sachs said in a statement regarding his collab with Nike. “It took a decade to make a shoe this simple, as simple as can be and no simpler. NikeCraft shuns innovation for its own sake, but embraces it as a necessity.”
He went on to say, “It took me years to best advantage the superpowers of scale and to deliver value while still reflecting the standards of my studio. A great collaboration is something that no partner could do without the other, and NikeCraft has always been a 50/50 collaboration.”
Finally, the NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe marks the 10-year partnership of Sach and the Oregon-based footwear manufacturing giant.
