Tom Sachs has produced some of the most iconic Nike collaborations in recent history. From the space-themed Mars Yard series to his dad shoe-like General Purpose Shoe (GPS), Sachs and his NikeCraft partnership has hit on all cylinders. This, however, all came to a screeching halt in early 2023 when allegations arose that he was running his New York City studio like a cult, among other troubling workplace behavior.

Since the allegations, we have yet to see a new Tom Sachs x Nike collab release. The last pair that dropped, the Nike GPS “Brown” came in February, just over a month before these allegations arose. Nike told Footwear News it is "deeply concerned by the very serious allegations," while adding, "We are in contact with Tom and his studio, seeking to better understand the situation and how these issues are being addressed." But besides that comment, it's been quiet on both fronts.

Before all this, Nike had plans to drop new colorways of the Nike GPS, including “White Yellow,” “White Gorge Green,” and “Rattan” pairs. Alongside a wave of GPSs, NikeCraft was gearing up to drop their latest silhouette from the Mars Yard line, the NikeCraft Mars Yard 3.0.

The last Mars Yard release, the Tom Sachs x NikeCraft Mars Yard Overshoe was released in 2019. Fast forward to 2021, and Sachs enlisted himself and select others to publicly wear test a sneaker many nicknamed the Mars Yard 2.5. This pair featured a similar look to the first two Mars Yard releases, with an added black rubber toe cap and modified ACG style sole. This pair also sports Nike React and Nike Flyplate technology, which should enhance comfort and durability tremendously.

Now, fresh for Holiday 2023, the NikeCraft Mars Yard 3.0 is set to debut. The pair will come in the familiar color scheme of natural, sport red, maple, sail, and black. While no images have surfaced yet, we should expect to see the Mars Yard 3.0 mimic its predecessors, sporting a beige and sail upper with red accents. The big takeaway is that the NikeCraft Mars Yard 3.0 is ready to drop for Holiday 2023. However, with the allegations surrounding Sachs, this release may get canceled and scrapped altogether.

Should it indeed go forward, the Tom Sachs x NikeCraft Mars Yard 3.0 is set to release in the Holiday 2023 season. It will drop at Tom Sachs, Nike, via the SNKRS app, and at select retailers worldwide, both in-store and online. Coming in men's sizing, retail is set at $275.
