The shoes are named Ozweego Robot and Response Trail Robot, which doesn’t make a huge amount of sense if they’re inspired by astronauts, but they certainly look the part.

The shoes are due to hit selected retailers sometime in July, with an expected price range between $455 and $730. Or you could try to make yourself a pair of magnetic astronaut boots, which sounds at least the same level of fun.
