Tom Sachs x NikeCraft DA6672-700 Versatile Shoe
In the sneaker world, Tom Sachs is best known for the Mars Yard design first launched in 2012 and then in 2017. Before the end of 2022, the 55-year-old American designer looks set to add another point to his NikeCraft partnership. with the release of the general purpose shoe, which recently surfaced in a predominantly yellow colourway.
Reminiscent of the tennis-inspired Killshot 2, the low-top silhouette features a much more palatable design than Sachs’ other shoe offerings. Durable suede and reinforced mesh make up the entire upper of the pair, complete with printed profile swooshes. Pull tabs on the tongue and heel add non-standard functionality to the court-inspired design, which has appeared on other Tom Sachs-branded Nike projects. The padded inner liner and breathable tongue also provide enhanced functionality to the general purpose shoe, allowing wearers to lace up style for any task. Underfoot, the soles don’t appear to be part of the cushioning solutions found in the Nike Running range, instead opting for a combination of EVA foam midsole and rubber outsole; the latter retains a waffle pattern rooted in the Swoosh’s performance heritage.
For more experimental takes marked with swooshes, check out the Nike Cortez sacai which is slated to arrive throughout Fall and Winter.
