Sneakers Motivated The Moon Landing And By Apollo 11 Launched

The Apollo 11 by NASA has had an outsize pressure since July 20, 1969, on our culture. That is the day the spaceflight mission completed its lunar landing successfully, making the path for Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong to turn out to be the first humans to set foot on the lunar surface. Till today, Apollo 11 stays one of the largest accomplishments in the space exploration history. It is only fitting, then, that those first steps Aldrin and Armstrong took have also made an entrance in sneaker segment.

As people rejoiced the Apollo 11 50th anniversary, some players in the industry are displaying some of the best shoes that have drawn motivation from the Moon landing and the mission. Brands such as Nike, Adidas, Vans, and New Balance have all made designs paying respect to this historical feat, in unofficial and official methods. While there are shoes that NASA has worked on, others just seem like they were meant to be boots for Moon.

On a related note, Time magazine is joining Google in marking 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 with the help of AR, even though this one is definitely different. And this might be specifically valuable if you are a history buff. The magazine has launched a Landing on the Moon AR experience for iOS in the Time Immersive app (and is shortly coming for Android users). The experience is also accessible Yahoo News’s app. This allows you explore the lunar surface, relive the landing (full with audio), and even stand beside Neil Armstrong while he fixes the flag.

It is billed as the most precise 3D recreation to date of the landing. Magic’s John Knoll and Industrial Light reproduced the flight path of the lander by sourcing NASA telemetry paths, using camera placement selected by examining lunar landmarks.
