Fashion label Y-3 -- a collaboration between Adidas and Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto -- has joined forces with Virgin Galactic, a spaceflight company within Virgin group, on a collection of space apparel.
The line features prototypes of boots and a full-body suit.
Both products have been specifically designed for use in space.
Lawrence Midwood (right), senior director of design at Y-3, and Adam Wells (left), head of design at Virgin Galactic revealed the prototypes on Thursday.
Midwood says, "The pilot flight-suit prototype that we have developed will ensure comfort, functionality and support for the pilots of the world's first commercial space flights."
Although the prototypes will be tested by astronauts, some of the apparel will eventually be made available to the commercial spaceline's customers.
Virgin Galactic's astronauts will be testing them for comfort and practicality in their test flight program.
In addition to the space suit and boot, Y-3 and Virgin Galactic are working on a third item: a space jacket.
It has been distributed to the company's future astronauts for the first Virgin Galactic space flight.
Made from leather, parts of the boot will also feature Nomex -- a heat resistant fabric.
TRAXION outsoles will be used for enhanced grip and a unique heel insert will increase shock absorption.
