Honestly, we are loving the steady influx of space-themed products this month. It’s a good guess that NASA is responsible for these renewed interested regarding outer space. For those unaware, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is highlighting the golden jubilee of the first lunar landing. There is a boatload of events that are paying homage to the success of the Apollo 11 mission. Likewise, merchandise tie-ins are in full swing. A Swiss sports apparel brand joins the fun with the On Cloud Edge Moonlight.
You’ll agree that the name is a dead giveaway of the footwear’s intended tribute. Don’t bother looking for it on the outer surfaces of the shoe, because there’s something else hiding in plain sight. Barely noticeable in brightly-lit environments are the stellar patterns within the fabric of the upper. Additionally, the tongue, laces, midsole, and outsole, are getting a similar treatment. The magic happens when light hits the shoe in darkness as the reflective materials mimic the stunning beauty of a starlit night sky.
The brand is calling the colorway of this limited edition pair of kicks Iris/Dust and it looks awesome. As with any running shoe, ventilation is essential, which is why the outer mesh material of the upper is breathable. To keep water from seeping into the shoe, there are plastic coatings on the toe cap. Remember what we pointed out earlier,
The On Cloud Edge Moonlight features a nod to lunar landings via a print of the moon’s surface on the sock liner. Finally, the CloudTec outsoles provide superior cushioning and superior traction. This shoe has every right to boast about its interstellar pedigree thanks to its partnership with PTScientists – a space and lunar research startup in Berlin.
