Inspired by the white spacesuits that have become synonymous with space travel, the shoe features a premium smooth white leather upper accented by tonal stitching and a John F. Kennedy Space Center stamp at the mid-foot. Additional space detailing comes in the form of “Shuttle Mission” tags on the tongues, removable velcro American flag patches on the heels and schematic printed insoles. Rounding up the design of the shoe is a gum rubber outsole and white foxing complete with ridged reinforcements at the heel and toe regions.
