Apollo A7L Suit TLSA and ITMG Gallery


View of the left boot on the ITMG.

I'm not entirely certain what these boots are. The boots on a standard A7L suit are part of the TLSA and ITMG boot zips onto the ITMG leg and covers the TLSA boot. During a lunar surface EVA, a lunar overboot would be worn over the combined TLSA/ITMG boot.

I suspect that these boots were fabricated for this display.

The end of the legs on this ITMG seems to have a cuff, rather than a zipper for the ITMG boot. Perhaps this iteration of the suit goes with this unknown TMG boot?
