Retro Revival: The Moon Boot

The Moon Boot

One small step for man, one giant leap for ski bunnies.

From Montana to the Matterhorn, nothing says après-ski like the Moon Boot (tecnicausa.com; $100). The brainchild of the Italian brand Tecnica, the high-tech design became an instant slopeside classic when it debuted in 1970, inspired by Neil Armstrong’s padded lunar look. Today, some 28 million pairs later, its retro-fabulousness is back in vogue. The boot now comes in a range of patterns and colors—rainbow! iridescent gold!—and has adorned the feet of everyone from Sir Paul McCartney to Snooki, who no doubt loves the fact that there are no rights or lefts (easy on, easy off).
