La llegada de la humanidad a la Luna, el 20 de julio de 1969, inspiró a varias generaciones, incluyendo a compañías de zapatillas. En 2018, la empresa holandesa Mercer Amsterdam se alió con la NASA para lanzar el modelo NASA x W3RD Apollo 11, recordando a los héroes del Apolo 11 que lograron llegar al satélite natural terrestre.

De este modelo solo se comercializaron, como parte de una edición especial, 96 pares de zapatillas. Como explica el portal Grailed, “esta colaboración única en la vida entre Mercer Amsterdam y la NASA representa lo que todos deseamos lograr: alcanzar las estrellas, lo inalcanzable, triunfar en lo imposible”.

Así eran las NASA x W3RD Apollo 11, zapatillas creadas por la colaboración entre la NASA y la empresa Mercer Amsterdam.

Engadget definía las NASA x W3RD Apollo 11 como “una de las zapatillas más elegantes con el tema del alunizaje”, pese a que Mercer Amsterdam no tuviera “el mismo reconocimiento de marca que Adidas, Nike, New Balance o Vans”.

Recordamos cómo eran las NASA x W3RD Apollo 11 de Mercer Amsterdam.

Las zapatillas tenían un color predominantemente blanco y elementos grises inspirados en el metal, pensando en los trajes espaciales de los astronautas del Apolo 11.

El material del que estaban hechas era cuero, con toques de azul en el costado y en el talón, además de los cordones rojos, siguiendo el esquema de la bandera de Estados Unidos.

El logotipo de la NASA se ubicaba en la parte lateral, mientras que en la zona lateral cercana a los dedos estaban las coordenadas del Centro Espacial Kennedy, desde donde se lanzó el Apolo 11.

Como hemos dicho, solo se vendieron 96 pares de zapatillas. El costo de aquel entonces era de 290 dólares.

Hoy, con el Programa Artemis de la NASA, se busca llegar de nuevo al hito logrado por Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin y Michael Collins en 1969, esta vez con la primera mujer que vuele hasta la Luna. ¿Se apuntará Mercer Amsterdam a un modelo especial para el momento en que ocurra el hecho?
