If Tom Sachs designed the Mars Yard for space travelers and scientists, the upcoming NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe (GPS) is made to walk the everyday. With a simplistic design, Sachs takes the spotlight away from the shoe while highlighting the people who wear them.

First leaked back in January, The NikeCraft GPS employs minimalist designs while offering a clean and stylish silhouette. Sachs emphasizes that the design took ten years to perfect to reach a simplistic ergonomic design. The silhouette is constructed with a three-piece molded cup sole, signature donning straps, microfiber collar, and ultra-breathable knit that can ward off a few raindrops. The Nikecraft GPS is set to release in multiple colorways, starting with the Light Cream “Studio” colorway. The GPS “Studio” features a gum rubber midsole, muted white upper, and blue donning straps to match the uniform worn by the Tom Sachs Studio team.

The announcement is accompanied by an ad featuring a photo of a dirty NikeCraft GPS above the word “BORING.” in large, bold letters. This emphasizes how the shoe was designed to look better with wear, as well as the simplistic approach to its design. This ad appeared as a full page on the New York Times over the weekend.

The Tom Sachs x Nike NikeCraft GPS “Studio” is set to launch on June 10 on Nikecraft.com retailing for $109.99 USD.
