If you missed out on the original collaboration between New York-based artist Tom Sachs and Nike, there's good news. The Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard 2.0, a new and improved version of the sneaker, is launching next week in New York City for $200.

The New York Times' T magazine reports that the shoes use a sturdier material than the original, which Sachs realized "broke like a paper clip" after wear. This problem plagued the artist's own wardrobe—he's already gone through all his personal pairs of the Mars Yard shoes. The 2017 version of the sneaker (pictured above) is cosmetically very close to the 2012 original (pictured below).

Nike CEO Mark Parker hinted at the return of this collaboration last April.

Those looking for a chance to grab a pair can sign up for Nike and Sachs' Space Camp, an experience that will be be part film screening and part obstacle course. Click here to reserve a spot for sessions, which begin on June 8.
