Moon Boots Are Back At Jeremy Scott

Nothing can upstage Gigi Hadid on the catwalk, but Thursday night at Jeremy Scott, 17 pairs of boots came close.

They were “skyscrapers,” in Scott’s words—metallic and furry Moon Boots that reached to the models’ thighs. They came in prints and in puffs, with shorter gold and neon versions made for the guys. (Though we bet many women will snag those, too.)

The collaboration comes in the wake of a comfort shoe revival: Crocs are now A Thing for Balenciaga and Christopher KaneJellies hit the Alberta Ferretti runwayBirkenstocks became fuck-me shoes, and thigh-high Uggs happened at Y-Project. Scott had his own Ugg line last summer, which was equally killer.

What makes these shoes exceptional is how seamlessly they fuse into Scott’s new collection. It’s not a stunt, or an obvious commercial grab. Instead, it’s yet another way to join Jeremy Scott’s fantastic, phantasmic universe—which riffed on vintage space babes like Barbarella and Judy Jetson this season, along with rave culture, ’60s kitsch, and The Fifth Element. There were also graphics of Popples (remember those?!), which passed by ’90s kids like Cardi B and Young Paris in the front row.

As for the Moon Boots, they’ll debut with Scott’s collection for Fall 2018. Mark your calendars for the imminent space walk.
