Socks Designed for Space
EnerWear Lunar Lander Socks — made using patented Outlast fabric tested in space — provide wearers with the ultimate in comfortability and utility, created for those extreme days that never seem to end.
Developed for NASA in 2003 and inducted into the NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame in 2005, Outlast fabric is specially designed for a continually changing environment. Crafted from phase-changing materials (PCM) that can absorb, store, and release heat for optimal thermal comfort makes Outlast socks the definitive footwear companion whatever the weather, location, or environment from the Antarctic Circle to the Gobi Desert or even the surface of the Moon.
Just like water, the microencapsulated materials within the socks can change from solid to liquid depending on their surrounding environment and the desired temperature by absorbing and releasing excess heat and is the only phase-changing material to be tested in space.
The new limited-edition socks made from patented Outlast fabric come in four colors, mission grey, universe black, midnight blue and earth brown. They will also come in three unique designs: the “USA stars and stripes”, “man on the moon” and “the footprint that made history.”
