On 20th July 1969 our world changed, but it was not here on Earth that a major breakthrough took place. It was the day man first stood on the Moon! In order to withstand the unfavourable space atmosphere, human feet must have been properly protected. Moon boots used by the crew of Apollo 11 were an inspiration for an Italian entrepreneur, Giancarlo Zanatta, who decided to produce similar footwear designed for winter and snow. This is how Moon Boot first appeared on the market in the early 1970s. Learn more and see the unique models available in SneakerStudio!
Moon Boot - how did it all start?
Giancarlo Zanatta’s Tecnica Group produced winterwear and skiing equipment as early as in 1960. 10 years later the company expanded its portfolio with one of the most recognisable products - Moon Boots. These characteristic snowboots grabbed attention with their unique design and eye-catching details. They were popular immediately after the Apollo 11 mission, but they resurfaced again in the 2000s with the arrival of retro-futuristic trends. But you would be mistaken to think that the original look is the only advantage of these boots. They will surprise you with their technical properties, which make them excellent footwear for winter.
Moon Boot - winter style
Moon boots will draw your attention with their chunky outline and high puffer shaft. This brand also offers more understated products - such as snowboots looking like sneakers. Some models come with soft and stylish faux fur, others have long Yeti-like fur, and others yet are finished with glitter or sequins. This diversity means every woman will find her perfect winter boots.
You can go for classic variants, which will look great with your everyday casual outfits, but you can also choose to be more extravagant and opt for colourful gradients designed for urban sports style. A wide range of available models is a response to diverse needs of contemporary consumers.
Every type of winter footwear should not only look attractive, but guarantee comfort and appropriate protection in inclement weather. Just like all kinds of good snowboots, Moon Boots are resistant to water and cold. They will keep your feet warm and protect them from snow or rain. Another thing about them is that they are incredibly ... light. This idea was also inspired by the Moon, where the gravity is less forceful than here on Earth. It is therefore obvious that our idea of gravity cannot apply to Moon Boots. As a result, although winter boots are normally associated with heavy soles and thick shaft, in this case you get lightweight models, which do not weigh your feet down even if worn all day long.
How to style Moon Boots?
The boots by this Italian brand sport a rather characteristic look, so you might think they will be difficult to style. You couldn’t be more wrong, though! Although there is a choice of standout models, you can always go for those less extravagant ones. Either way, due to the chunky outline these boots are best worn with leggings or skinny jeans. By pairing typical dark-coloured winterwear with colourful or light snowboots you will nicely expose the footwear. Your look will be complete with eye-catching shoelaces and original finish - the Moon Boot brand is actually famous for all of these.
