2009 was the 40th year anniversary of the Nasa Lunar Landing. Nike commemorated the event by creating a few sneakers and this time we look at a sneaker meant to pay homage to Buzz Aldrins role. The Nike 6.0 Rocket Hero Mavrk Mid 2 is ‘by’ Buzz Aldrin is sneaker and it features a suede overlay that yields to metallic silver leather on the inner Swooshes (symbolizing the light and dark sides of the moon). Meanwhile the insoles feature a  moonboot footprint.  ‘BUZZ ALDRIN ROCKET HERO’ is emblazoned across the tongue of the sneaker. The sneaker will be at select Nike 6.0 retailers on New Year’s Day 2010.
