Vote: Are Moon Walker Shoes the Next Big Thing?

By Abbey Tiderman 02.20.2017 blog

 

“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Ever since those famous words were spoken by Neil Armstrong as the world’s first moonwalk took place in 1969, generations have wondered what it’s like to walk on the moon. Not NASA astronaut? No problem. There’s a new shoe that’ll help you defy gravity right here on Earth. Meet the 2016 Moon Walker.

The innovative design of this footwear will set your feet soaring. These shoes are lightweight and water resistant on the outside, with DuPont Tyvek synthetic polyethylene on the inside (same stuff used by NASA on their space station modules!) The souls are made with foot-snuggling memory foam.

Then there’s the magical moon-walking sensation. It’s created by strategically placing the north poles of two thin-but-powerful N45 Neodymium magnets so that they’re facing. As they strongly repel one another, there’s a strip of air between them, so that you’re quite literally walking on air.

Moon Walkers are also smart shoes, featuring an E-Ink screen around the base controlled by a smart phone app, so you can customize and integrate with your social networks. Would you wear them?

Vote and tell us what you think — you can even submit video comments to nbt@channelone.com. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!

    No,I do not think moonwalkers are the next big thing because if you want to walk on the moon go in a spaceship on walk on the moon.

    Yes because the feeling of the shoes make kids have an experience of what it might feel like to walk on the moon.
