In 1969, there was no grander inspiration than outer space. After all, it was the year that Apollo 11 touched down on the moon and Italian footwear label Tecnica created a boot that mimicked astronaut gear. Since then, the world has been smitten with moon boots and this winter, Jimmy Choo got in on the action.
The two brands joined forces on an exclusive collaboration, where form and function meet flash and glamour. Smothered in fine shearling, tied up in a bow and finished off with a dash of silver, this is the most stylish way to stomp through slushy puddles. “I’ve always loved the futuristic, yet retro-cool Italian design of moon boots,” gushed Jimmy Choo’s creative director, Sandra Choi.
