Jul 20, 2017

Partnering with the David Clark Company, Reebok is now testing prototypes for what they claim is “the first evolution in space footwear in over 50 years.” It’s their new Floatride Space Boot SB-01, and given a successful testing phase, will soon be worn by astronauts aboard the Boeing CST-100 Strainer spacecraft.

Part running shoe, sandal, aviator boot and wrestling boot, the Space Boot also utilizes the same proprietary technology featured in their Floatride running sneaker. The result is enhanced mobility combined with a fire-resistant Nome shell with a mesh that also locks in place once the suit inflates. They’re also poised to release the Floatride 100g Racer in conjunction with the Space Boot as well – boasting an ultralight midsole, a mesh upper, and durable outsole. Production is slated for 2018.
