An insane amount of planning was done before Apollo 11 embarked on its mission to the moon. This included everything from the obvious landing itself right on down to the gear the astronauts would wear. Proof of that extensive testing is headed to auction, as a prototype lunar boot created for Neil Armstrong is about to cross the block. Manufactured by the International Latex Corporation in Dover, Delaware, the boot was ultimately rejected for reasons unknown. Still, as the stitched “Armstrong” moniker suggests, it was very much in the running to see action in flight and during training activities. If you pony up the big bucks, you’ll receive the boot and a custom presentation stand so you can display your little piece of history.
