Tom Sachs Says the NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe Will Be ‘Restocked’ and ‘Perennial’
Nike collaborator and creative Tom Sachs’ latest General Purpose Shoe dropped over the weekend to instant sell-out success. Some fans even got their pairs ahead of time because they were NFT owners. For everyone else that missed out and is itching to line the pockets of opportunistic resellers, Sachs suggest they wait.
‘If you missed out today - Do NOT worry, this is not your last chance to buy this shoe. You will NOT be left turning to resellers. The General Purpose Shoe is designed to be a perennial. It will be restocked and accessible again,’ he said on Instagram.
This move isn’t the first instance of a collaboration being restocked or continually available. Patta have an ongoing Reebok Club C that’s exclusively available at their brick and mortar stores, and is regularly replenished. Not to mention the Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Zebra’ has restocked multiple times over the years.
Sachs says the next restock of GPS is due in August, which isn’t too far away. There’s also a possibility more colours will be introduced beyond this ‘Studio’ version. The artist has now been working with the Swoosh for a decade via the NikeCraft program – recap all of his efforts here.
