To commemorate Neil Armstrong's historic first step, the companies GE, JackThreads and Android Homme have redesigned the moon boot into shoe that celebrates “the possibilities of design and function unlocked by advanced materials,” according to the press release. 'The Missions' sneaker certainly can’t be worn on the moon, but it has some cool design similarities to the original moon boots. Stabilized carbon fiber makes the boots light weight, and the reflective coating is reminiscent of the metallic sheen on the original boot. Another special coating makes the shoes water resistant, and the thermoplastic soles were made by GE, which manufactured the super-thick soles of the original moon boots. The result is an oddly triangular sneaker that may not ensure your safe footsteps on the lunar surface, but embodies the sorts of advances that got us there in the first place.
