|Tom Sachs' NIKECraft: Mars Yard Shoe, £325|
Nike really are doing their best to convert me at the moment. Check out these super tactile NIKECraft designs from their collaboration with bricolage artist Tom Sachs coinciding with the launch of his latest art project, SPACE PROGRAM: Mars.
Inspired by the athletic journey astronauts take to get them space-ready, these designs are a joint collaboration between Nike - who bring the tech - and Tom - who brings the space-geek chic.
