These Incredibly Dope Sneakers Were Inspired by the Apollo 11 Moon Landing

J.Crew and New Balance stay killing the game. A few short months after dropping a flame-emoji pair of butterscotch-inspired kicks, the dynamic duo have returned to set all our collective hearts and feet alight with these beauts that pay tribute to the historic Apollo 11 moon landing.

New Balance for J.Crew 997 Moonshot Sneakers_3

Decked out in a lunar palette of tan, navy and grey, the 997 “Moonshot” sneakers come in a crazy dope, vacuum-sealed packaging that some serious collectors are inevitably going to want to keep pristine. That would be a damn shame, though, because these are some of the most wearable sneaks out right now: they’ll top off everything from your navy suit to your favourite chambray shorts with a touch of Buzz Aldrin-esque badassery.

They’ll be touching down online and at select J.Crew stores (including Vancouver’s Robson Street location) on July 20th at 10AM — the anniversary of Apollo 11’s launch date — for $250.
