Shiny space shoes: 'Mercury All American' sneakers styled after astronaut footwear
You can now take a walk in NASA's original astronaut shoes, or at least a pair inspired by them, if you are among the very lucky few.
Heddels, an online resource for well-made clothing, has announced the "Mercury All American," a sneaker made with the athletic shoe brand PF Flyers. The limited edition footwear honors PF's role in Project Mercury, the United States' first human spaceflight program established 60 years ago.
...the $380 Mercury All American is limited to just 21 pairs — the same number of spacesuits that B.F. Goodrich delivered to NASA. Heddels is running a free raffle through Sunday (Feb. 11) for the opportunity to purchase the shoes.
