Adidas goes to Infinity and Beyond

Y3 BootsPerformance wear had just gone to a new level with the launch of  a range of garments from Y-3, a collaboration between designer Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas, for the  pilots and ground staff of the Virgin Galactic commercial spaceflight operations.

 

The range of space travel suits are made from Nomex, the flame retardant  fiber from Dupont. The coordinating boots are made from leather and Nomex, with Adidas Traxion outsoles and Adiprene heels for shock absorption. Incredibly lightweight, the suits are also anatomically  engineered for every twist and turn a pilot might make.
