You Would Never Have Guessed Reebok Also Made Space Boot For Astronauts

Who would have thought sport gear maker Reebok would ever produce footwear for astronauts? Certainly not us. The Reebok Floatride Space Boot SB-01 you see here is the footwear in question and it was developed in collaboration with David Clark Company’s aerospace branch. This pair of boots is literally a space-age footwear. Most impressively, though, it is not even a concept as in the case of many such footwear; the Reebok Floatride Space Boot SB-01 is being put through its paces by astronauts and if all goes as planned, it will be the boot of choice for astronauts shuttling between Earth and the International Space Station (ISS).

Cowboy Rocket Johnny? Perhaps. One thing is for sure: this pair of rolling cowboy kicks is not horse-friendly, but nobody’s going to stop you from rodeoing with it.

Wilcox Boots – Handcrafted Boots Made for Adventuring in Classic Style

Boots made for rugged environments are a dime a dozen with many of them coming from big brand names which are usually pricey and/or lacking the personal touch.

This Rugged Boot is Designed for Civilians, But Soon To Be Used by Marines and Special Forces

When it comes to tough-wearing, no nonsense boots that will see you through your outdoor activities, there is nothing like a pair that’s designed by someone who actually uses them. The Lalo Tactical Shadow Boot is exactly the rugged boots made for civilians to rough it out in whatever they maybe doing. The Shadow Boot is the product of Lalo, a startup founded by former Navy SEAL Nathenael Roberti who had seen plenty of action, including deployment in Afghanistan, right in the middle of danger zone. Apart from the obvious dangers and threats, one other thing that really bugged Roberti was the boots; they become uncomfortably heavy and noisy when wet and as a result, he had to have them changed out for a dry pair mid-mission, which is clearly not an ideal scenario regardless if its war or leisure and hence, the birth of Shadow Boot, which Roberti is selling alongside his other line of shoes that goes under Lalo Sport.

Timberland’s Limited Release Level 61 6-inch Boot Pays Homage To Mobb Deep

what you see here is not a ‘vintage’ from the 90s. it is a reissue of the 6-inch boot, which is also a collaboration between the outdoor wear maker and the 90s hip hop sensation (who are very much alive and kicking, btw), featuring rich brown leather upper, along with metal ‘nut’ (as in bolts and nuts) eyelet, two-tone nylon rope laces, cushioned green nubuck collar, and finally, finishing off with the signature high-traction and durable rubber lug outsole. so are we impressed by the images. of course, we are, if not we won’t be featuring it. but the thing is, we are not even sure if it is in fact a collab or was Timberland paying homage to the Queens hip hop duo.
