July 20th of this year marks the 47th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 mission, and J.Crew is commemorating it with a special Moonshot edition of the New Balance 997 sneaker. Decked out in off-white and blue suede with pops of white leather, blue leather and mesh, this 997 collaboration exudes aspects of the moon landing like the surface of the moon and the vacuum of space. They’re even packed like your favorite space snacks with a vacuum-sealed foil packaging and “space treats” if you purchase the sneaker in store.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
