On 20th July 1969, millions of people watched Apollo 11 land on the moon, including a young Italian bootmaker called Giancarlo Zanatta. He took great inspiration from the shape and style of the astronauts' boots and subsequently went on to design one of the most iconic pieces of footwear of the 20th century.
The Original Moon Boot offered something innovative and revolutionary, and was unlike anything else on the market. It quickly became popular and cemented itself as an après-ski winter boot in the 1970s. Since then, Moon Boot has grown by developing new styles and updating the Original design, all the while staying true to its classic space-age roots.
The popularity of the Moon Boot continues to grow, with the Original still widely sought after. Combining comfort and warmth with unique styling and character, Moon Boot is recognised all over the world as the go-to brand for iconic winter boots.
