UPDATE 12/23: Nike has confirmed that the Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard 2.5 will be releasing soon, but will need help of fans to wear test the shoe ahead of its launch. Applications to join the Mars Yard 2.5 Wear Test will be accepted via one-minute videos uploaded to Instagram explaining why you want to join, and the video must be submitted by 11:59 PM on December 31st, 2020. Those selected will be required to give their feedback on the Mars Yard 2.5. When the program is over, the shoe sill be returned, sanitized, studied, repaired, and reissued.
“With this particular challenge, we are engaging people to really think about this shoe and bring different perspectives, both culturally and environmentally,” says Sachs. “This is an opportunity to invite a larger audience to really indulge in our favorite part of the process — learning about things and making stuff. The process is the most valuable thing, and if the end result is a great pair of shoes, that’s fantastic. But I think it’s really important that the testing process celebrates the journey.”
Nike has yet to confirm a wider release of the Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard 2.5.

This pair appears to feature a new cushioning setup in the midsole atop a waffle outsole. As of now, it’s unclear which version of the Mars Yard 2.5 will release to the public.
