TykeanautI like those, good job!
gliderpilotukFINALLY, Ugg boots justify their existence!

Good job.

garymilgromNice boots, nice video!
onesmallstepHmm... I guess now anybody can own a pair and maybe use them in art and painting projects, like Al Bean does in his work, making impressions on the canvas with a lunar boot?
mikepfThat is totally insane. I love it. Thanks for making my morning.

My wife concurs!

JBoeGreat job and video! Maybe the UGG was a space spinoff.
PhilipLOL... song "spinning out of control."
fredtravThanks for that.
Joel KatzowitzThat is awesome. That's what life should be, get an idea and let it take you on a journey. OK, maybe I'm being too philosophical.
p51When I was a kid, I swear I saw a pair of boots at a sporting goods store that were actually called, "Moon boots," but I can't really say how accurate they were, other than I recall the tread looking somewhat similar to the A7 series suit overshoes...
MarylandSpaceAnother great idea from the cS minds out there! Totally awesome. Ian, where is the kilt?

They became popular in the 60s-70s, made by Tecnica and now available once again at this site Here is a site with some of the history.

Charlie16Great idea and great dexterity! When to start mass production? Bravo!
rcarnicomGreat job on boots. I'm currently recreating a replica of Buzz Aldrin's moon suit for a school project and was wondering what type of material you used for the simulated blue silicone on the boot?
