“Space Camp is an athletic, dietary and psychological conditioning program, designed to prepare our crew for the rigors of the Mars mission.”

Have you ever sat down and thoroughly considered the implications of deep space travel? Most of us have only scratched the surface of those philosophical and aeronautical concerns, but a group of young British creatives is going much further each morning as they arrive at Space Camp two hours before beginning their normal work days. So while Nat Geo might have you believing that this time could be better spent preparing for the apocalypse, these folks led by high-concept sculptor Tom Sachs are spending extra time every day prepping their bodies with Pat Manocchia’s exercises¬†to handle the nearly 55lbs that’s added when one dons an extravehicular space suit. This video and the 1948 London installation it’s teasing isn’t your typical sneaker collaboration to be sure, but another certainty is that the interest in Air Jordan NASA PEs just went up by orders of magnitude. ¬†Given the popularity of the space-inspired ‘Galaxy’ designs a short while back, what reaction would you predict for something like a NASA x Air Jordan XI ’100 Foot Dunk’? Let us know what you think of this unique pairing after the jump, and be sure to keep up with your five major movement groups!

this seems like a video that would be playing on a loop at the museum of contemporary art

I don't care how good of a designer he is or how "in style" these are this year, they're ugly AF... Even uglier than Jesus sandals
