- B. F. Goodrich Co.
- John H. Glenn, Jr.
- This boot is part of the pair attached to the display spacesuit replicating John Glenn's historic Mercury orbital flight in February, 1962.
- The gloves were constructed of an inner layer made from a mold of the astronaut's hand, dipped in a rubber compound. The outer layer was fabricated of one-way stretch nylon with neoprene-impregnated palms and lacing on the back. The gloves assumed the contours of the hand controller, and attached to the suit with a ball-bearing lock mechanism.
