LN-CC CAPTURES FANTASY SCENARIOS WITHIN UNEXPLORED REALMS TO CELEBRATE THE 54-YEAR LEGACY OF THE ICONIC MOON BOOT 

As relevant and iconic as ever, Moon Boot continues to fascinate generations with an irresistible mix of bold aesthetic and surreal attitude for Resort and Autumn / Winter 2023. Infused with an audacious spirit, allow the essence of the Moon Boot to transport you out of this world. 

Retrofuturistic, iconic and steeped in heritage since its 1969 inception, Moon Boot’s design stands as a testament to enduring innovation. Drawing inspiration from the shape and technology of the astronaut's antigravity boots worn during the Apollo 11 moon landing—the very year of Moon Boot's debut—it stands today as a pinnacle of 20th-century iconography. Characterised by a legacy of bold experimentation and an ethos of genderless, ambidextrous design, Moon Boot transcends the boundaries of time. 

Step into the celestial embrace of Moon Boot, where each stride becomes an impactful statement of winter resilience. With the ground beneath turning frosty, Moon Boot emerges as more than footwear; it's a commitment to style and functionality, blending sportswear with utility in every step. The distinctive silhouette, coupled with its trademark wrap-around lacing, propels Moon Boot to the status of the ultimate winter boot—cherished both on and off the slopes—an unparalleled embodiment of refined craftsmanship. 

In a bold expansion of its iconic heritage for the Resort and Autumn / Winter 2023 collections, Moon Boot revisits the design and lines of its original Icon, unveiling a palette of new colourways and tactile, glitter-adorned finishes. This bold evolution promises to further diversify Moon Boot's storied legacy, offering a new footwear experience that is as innovative as it is essential. 

LN-CC enlists the talents of 3D artist Georgia Canning to reimagine the concept of adventure through a mesmerising animation that encapsulates a history defined by experimentation and an uninhibited spirit. Low iterations of the original style, rainbow-infused beaded laces, cow prints and Dalmatian textures usher in a fresh era. 

Take a moment to let your mind wander into lands unexplored and use your imagination to travel to other destinations you’d rather be, painted in whimsical dream-like hues. With Moon Boot lighting the way, envision fearless leaps and purposeful strides into the unknown – it’s in these moments that a whole new universe is born.
