Reebok's Space Boots Were Designed for Astronauts' International Voyage

Reebok's Space Boots were created specifically for astronauts taking part in an upcoming International Space Station Voyage.

The boot was made in collaboration with the same aerospace equipment technicians who are designing the space suits for the same upcoming mission. The boot, dubbed the 'Space Boot SB-01,' oddly looks like a shoe, within a shoe. The boot's outer layer features a zip up shell that's comprised of fire-resistant polymer, while the inside is a stretchy, versatile mesh that offers wearers a full range of movement. The white shoe's minimal design features 'Reebok's' branding on the tongue and a blue-to-white gradient that complements the astronauts' blue spacesuits.

Reebok allegedly struggled with producing a design that's compatible in a zero atmosphere environment, but rose to the challenge, pioneering the first change to Space footwear in over 50 years.
