Taking one huge but small step forward, Nike will be releasing the iconic Tom Sach’s Mars Yard shoe in kid’s sizing.
Nike has had a fascination with crib and toddler-sized shoes from the start. After Tinker Hatfield studied the importance of foot development and the primary needs for a baby athlete in 1980, Tom Sachs has picked up on where he left off as he too became interested in supporting little feet as best as possible. And what better way to study the technology than on his coveted and iconic Mars Yard silhouette.
“The Sachs studio is a professional athletic team. Our sport is making sculpture. Nike makes performance products for the needs of championship athletes worldwide, and Nike makes our uniforms,” says Sachs. “Bottom line, my son, Guy Louis Armstrong Sachs, is on the sculpture team now. He’s an important part of the team and he’s got his French work smock, his 10 bullets onesie and, now, he has his Mars Yards.”
The shoes have a flexible sole and a Velcro collar. This supports young athlete movement and, important for Sachs, makes them simple to put on. “The shoe is very, very flexible and that’s what you ultimately want when developing a strong new member of the team — you don’t want a lot of structure,” he says.
