Vans created a new line of products to celebrate NASA’s 60 years of space exploration and innovation. You might have thought that Vans only cared about skating, but these Vans x Space Voyager Sk8-Hi 46 MTE DX Shoes clearly show how they were inspired by the original moon boots worn by Apollo astronauts.
These high-top sneakers feature weather-resistant leather uppers, warm linings, and vulcanized lug outsoles with maximum traction, making them ideal for winter wear. They sport embroidered patches featuring the NASA logo, the JPL NASA Voyager logo, and the NASA EVA patch—the flight suit logo modeled after Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man.
Vans We have liftoff! Vans commemorates NASA by launching a tribute truly out of this world, with a stellar collection that celebrates 60 years of space exploration and innovation. Inspired by features and textures of the original moon boots and topped off with cosmic details, the Vans x Space Voyager Sk8-Hi 46 MTE DX revamps the legendary Vans high top with embroidered patches, heel screenprints, and additions designed for the elements. Deluxe weather-resistant leather uppers, warm linings, and a heat retention layer between sockliner and outsole keep feet warm and dry while the newly-constructed vulcanized lug outsole takes advantage of 20 years of snow boot history for maximum traction. The Sk8-Hi 46 MTE DX also features UltraCush insoles for long-lasting comfort, re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear, and padded collars for support and flexibility.
