Space Jam: Nike's Moon Shoes Are Catching On - MyMoon

NASA and MyMoon have teamed up to blog about everything lunar. Art, literature, music, movies, science, and everything in between!

All quiet on the twitter front.

SPACE JAM: NIKE'S MOON SHOES ARE CATCHING ON

In my searches for Moon content lately, I’ve been seeing more and more…

Shoes.

Moon shoes.

They’re pretty dapper---and pretty damn popular, too!

It’s Nike’s Lunarlon series, and every day, more and more of these shoes pop up---on Instagram, on Twitter...

They use a “LUNARLON” cushioning technology (which sounds a lot like Lunar Lion, a competitor in the Google Lunar XPRIZE) which takes inspiration from the Apollo moonwalks---and that bouncy feeling of near weightlessness. Pretty awesome.

Think we’ll see Buzz Aldrin or Jack Schmitt in some of these soon? Or for that matter, have you (or someone you know) gotten some of these yet?

I've looked into getting a pair. They look pretty comfortable, plus, would always be nice to feel like your walking on the moon!
