Not here for the hype, Tom Sachs (the artist behind the NikeCraft Mars Yard) returns with the General Purpose shoe.
Similar to the Mars Yard, the GPS shares the ethos of being made to wear everyday - "they do their job so you do yours". The inspiration behind making the "world's most boring shoe"? Blue-collar workers owning their favourite pair of jeans, because they share the same workwear quality with yellow knit uppers and functional suede overlays. Underfoot, the waffle sole celebrates Bill Bowerman's very first shoe in the waffle iron. For sneakerheads it might just be the release of 2022: a shoe to be worn, because as Sachs intended, your kicks shouldn’t be the most interesting thing about you!
