See what NBC Sports has to say... Moon Boot Lilac get's some Press. There is no such thing as bad PR, right? We’ve written previously about the hipster doofus who makes a habit of showing up to Miami Heat games wearing Uggs and an inappropriate amount of man jewelry. But just when we thought that he wouldn’t have the nerve to rock the femme footwear in the playoffs, he ups the ante. Behold, the Moon Boot. Original from Italy by Tecnica — made in super lightweight materials, water-resistant and very warm! Dexter has killed for less.
