‘weight is a huge factor in space travel with just a single pound having big financial implications,’ comments matt montross of reebok innovation. ‘traditional space boots were made of rigid leather with firm soles and were not integrated into the actual space suit. reebok floatride foam introduced three revolutionary elements to the space boot; it decreased the overall weight significantly, it brought the added comfort in a space boot and support that you would expect in a running shoe and it delivered a new level of sleekness and style.’
