They're called Space Boots, Dur!

Space Boots, who would have thunk it?

Anyone who grew up in the 70's (in a part of North America that experienced snow) would remember these fashionable numbers on the playground.

For years, I kept asking people "remember those Space Boot things kids wore?" but not knowing their actual name. Well, they're actually called Space Boots, what a surpected exprise.

Toy stuff: This month's Toyshop Magazine features a whole 70's Superhero tribute, Evel Knievel, Mego Superheroes and Energized Spider-Man are the topics at hand. Support the newly revised Toyshop and pick up a copy today!

In Chicago I remember them being called Moon Boots also, but I never wore them, I wasn't cool enough.

These worked perfectly to complete my Ace Frehley Halloween costume in '79! Man, I loved those boots and wore 'em way after Halloween...only wore the rhinestone studded black tights that one time, though...
