Under Armour’s New Astronaut Suits and Boots Will Have You Dreaming of the Cosmos
For years we’ve been hearing about the dream of commercial space flight. And as Virgin Galactic creeps closer to making that dream a reality, it’s only natural to think about what well-heeled interstellar virgins might wear. Thanks to a partnership with Under Armour, it appears they have a chance to look and feel pretty fantastic.
That’s right: the two brands have teamed up to launch a “commercial spacewear system” incorporating all of UA’s most progressive fitness tech. The series consists of three main pieces: a base layer, a spacesuit and our favorite part… space boots.
What makes this gear so special? The base layer features UA Rush tech, designed to enhance performance and blood flow, as well as Intelliknit, a temperature regulation and sweat-wicking system to keep you cool when the rockets get hot.
Meanwhile, the stylish-looking spacesuit boasts UA Clone, a proprietary material that forms to your body for a seamless feel, plus HOVR cushioning in the shoulder pads and neck, areas that can be at risk during high G portions of space flight. The suit also features several cutting-edge fabrics intended to keep first-time astronauts climate-controlled and comfortable.
Last but not least, the space boots take inspiration from racecar drivers’ footwear and, paired with UA’s latest footwear tech, represent a big departure from the traditional astronaut’s bulky moon boot. The boots feature UA Clone tech, HOVR cushioning and a streamlined look. That means you can gracefully float through zero gravity, with no worry of snagging your feet as you contemplate the majesty of space.
Oh, and if you need something to tide you over until liftoff, you can always pick up a UA x Virgin Atlantic Graphic T-shirt and look sharp right here on Planet Earth.
