Gear up in style on the snow slopes with Moncler and Moon Boot

Inspired by the first moon landing in 1969, Giancarlo Zanatta took the shape and technology of astronaut boots to conceive his original Moon Boot. While it stormed a controversy surrounding fashion in function — those serious about snow could not care less for stylistic elements in their gear when frostbite’s a looming concern — the Moon Boot quickly became the master of après ski shoes, ironically representing functional fashion during the 1980s.

With this shared vision of function-in-fashion, Moncler now pairs with Zanatta’s creation in a capsule collection that revisits the traditional morphology of the Moon Boot through its fabrication, proportion and height. There’s the full matt black tone-on-tone Saturne and its low-cut counterpart Uranus; the glazed-black Venus cocooned in silvery fox fur for extra warmth; and the standout Jupiter crafted in sand, khaki and griege canvas with an overlaid tongue and reinforced toe. Clearly, Moncler has proven that a simple pair of winter sports shoe can be iconic in modern times too.
