1961, seven American astronauts (who collectively became known as the
Mercury Seven, the Original Seven or Astronaut Group 1) were pictured
wearing a trendy style of boots before their trip into space. The boots
were manufactured by Northamptonshire factory 'Hawkins Inc', which was
founded in 1850 by George Thomas Hawkins. Combining the famous factory
name with the historic group gave way to the Hawkins Astronaut
title. The boot style maintained its popularity throughout the '60s and
became part of the iconic uniform for sub-cultural groups like the Mods
In 1995, the historic GT Hawkins factory closed its doors after 120 years of trading leaving many brands developing adaptations of the classic look. Solovair's Goodyear welted Astronaut boot pays homage to the original Hawkins style.
