Nike may have struck instant gold in their collaborations with contemporary artist Tom Sachs, as the multifaceted creative has taken them down a unique path of mindful consumerism, ushering in his ever-iconic Mars Yard to the masses in signature fashion. The Maple and Sport Red kit popularized throughout sneaker and high-fashion culture has surely exacerbated many a look of defeat as each iteration has skyrocketed on resell markets with almost no plans on falling back down to Earth. Though that may be the case — as the Mars Yard’s future is continuously vague — Beaverton is giving us a welcome consolation prize in the form of an SB Team Classic. Its low profile tooling and understated kit make it a perfect canvas for transformation, taking to its muse’s color scheme with no issue. Forefoot panels, lace stay, and heel counter come drowned in the tan tone with the underlays exhibiting a much more neutral off-white. Branding hits and the bold red swoosh finish of the model for a heartfelt homage.
