The long awaited 2.0 version of the NikeLab Tom Sachs Mars Yard
Craft shoe has landed... or not really. Due to be released today, the shoes sold out within milliseconds at every retailer UK wide and then were rescheduled at NikeLab
(2.0 version with updated Mesh panelling)
The story so far is the shoes were reproduced at Tom Sachs'
command because the original version used a space age material called Vectran on the toebox and quarter panel which deteriorated quickly with use.

Word on the forums is Nike will be producing more pairs because of unprecedented demand and releasing them at a later date.
At least if you manage to get a pair 3rd time round you'll be able to use SneakersER
cleaning solution without worrying abut the toebox splitting.
