Last month Nike and contemporary artist Tom Sachs created a sneaker design together, and now they've followed that with a bag that can be worn several ways.

The brand reached out to Portland-based The Good Flock founder and product design director Marco Murillo to design a bag for influencers in support of the recent Mars Yard 2.0 sneaker launch. The sneakers were inspired by shoes that astronauts wear in space, and were based on Sachs' meetings with NASA scientists,

The bag, which will be available for purchase in the fall, can be worn as a waist pack, backpack or tote bag and also takes its inspiration from space. It's made from a fabric called dyneema, which apparently possesses around five times more tensile strength than steel by weight, yet can still float on water.

The Good Flock created the video seen here to show how the team put together the design in just 90 days.
