As it seems more and more likely we will be heading into space to try to explore and settle other planets in the universe, Reebok is getting ahead of the game—by engineering a brand new space boot. By partnering with the David Clark Company, the infamous sneaker company has created a lightweight and stylish new boot for space travel, dubbed by the brand as the first new innovation in galactic footwear in over 50 years.
With a comfy white sole that fades from light to dark blue at the top of the boot, the Reebok Floatride Space Boot SB-01 is currently being tested by astronauts. It is aiming to become the official boot for the final space suits they wear to and from the new international space station, the CST-100 Starliner.
The same technology that was made to fashion the Floatride Space Boot SB-01 is also in the new Reebok shoe the Floatride Run, which debuted as a new running shoe this past Spring. And building upon the clear success and growing popularity of the Floatride kicks, a new version of the sneaker will be released next year, with the Floatride Racer weighing only 100 grams total thanks to it’s feather light mid-sole, a mesh upper and a durable outsole.
It’s looking more and more like Reebok may be the shoe of the future.
