These Give a Whole New Meaning to the Moonwalk!
Only twelve humans have ever walked on the moon, but now you can experience the feeling.
At least that’s what the New York-based startup Moonshine Crea promises to deliver. Described as “futuristic urban shoes specially designed to experience what it feels like to walk on the moon,” the MoonWalker Shoes use terrestrial technology to give you an out-of-this-world walking experience.
It’s One Small Step for Man…
The project started on Indiegogo, and originally set out to raise just $20,000.
With two days still left to raise funds and backers, MoonWalkers have already been pledged $161,871, over 800% of their flexible goal. Needless to say, people love the idea of shoes that will give them the experience of walking on the moon.
Various styles of the shoes are available for preorder, but they’re all made with the same technology.
Moonshine Crea uses N45 neodymium magnets, which are some of the most powerful magnets on the planet, composed of neodymium, iron and boron. Inside of the shoes, two layers of 12-13 of the magnets are aligned so that their north poles face each other, causing a strong repulsion that gives the wearer an anti-gravity sensation like floating. The shoes are lined with memory foam for an even more comfortable experience.
