Want your style to be totally out of this world? Well now you actually can make it happen thanks to GE and their new special line of moonboot-inspired sneakers celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. 

GE (yes, the General Electric) and sneaker brand Android Homme are teaming up to present limited edition commemorative shoes that are based on the original boots that Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong wore when they made their historic first steps on the moon. 

You can pick up a pair of the unisex sneakers through JackThreads on Sunday, July 20 at 4:18 PM—the exact time Apollo 11 landed on the moon. But act fast, because only 100 pairs will be sold. 

Finally we have a chance to revisit our childhoods and make believe we are astronauts bouncing around in space. Or, at least, we'll have the perfect way to show off our Michael Jackson moonwalking skills.
