    After a conversation with Nike CEO Mark Parker on the merits of individual handicraft versus factory production, artist Tom Sachs began working on NikeCraft. According to Sachs’ booklet for the NikeCraft project, “These shoes are built to support the bodies of the strongest minds in the aerospace industry.” The materials used to make the shoes include Nike Special Forces outsoles and Vectran fabric from the airbags on the Mars Excursion Rover. The limited-edition Mars Yard sneakers retain a feeling of hand manufacture and have become one of the most coveted collaborations in sneaker history.
