Drawing from the design of spacesuits used by the US space agency, all the shoes included in the special set pay homage to the Voyager 1 & 2 and Apollo 11 missions. Done in “True White” and “Firecracker,” the Old Skools feature tonal stitching, a John F. Kennedy Space Center mid-foot stamp, “Shuttle Mission” tongue tags, removable velcro American flag heel patches, and a reinforced sole unit. Utilizing more or less the same design elements, the “True White” and “Black” SK8-His are dressed with more velcro patches and Neil Armstrong’s historic “the eagle has landed quote” at the heel. Additionally, the collection also features a NASA-themed jacket, backpack and two more footwear models, which have yet to be revealed.
