The of us behind the now-viral “Big Red Boots” craze have new weird footwear to promote you for a pleasant little chunk of change — it is a sneaker that swings each methods … fairly actually.
MSCHF — the Brooklyn-based artwork collective, which all the time appears to be churning out quirky merchandise like this — introduced their newest creation this weekend. They name it the BWD Shoe, and the gimmick this time is … you possibly can slide your foot in from the entrance or the again.
You heard that appropriately … whereas the inventory photograph of theirs exhibits a foot mannequin coming in from what would usually be the highest of the shoe (north) — making it appear to be they’re carrying the shoe fully backwards — you possibly can really put on it historically too.
To be sincere, we’re probably not positive how the mechanics of this design work. It’s additionally unclear if each suits really feel the identical, or if one’s extra cosy than the opposite. From what we are able to see right here, the “ahead” model appears loads like a sandal — AKA, not an excessive amount of of heel/ankle help.
These issues drop on April 11, and are solely going to be on sale for a one-hour window beginning at 2 PM ET by way of their web site or the MSCHF Sneakers app. Price tag … $135.
Not practically as costly as their famed boots are (about $350), and who is aware of what they’re going to go for on the resale market. The reality they’re promoting/promoting them as tremendous unique suggests they’re going to go for lots. Another issue to contemplate … will celebs come flocking???
Tons of stars bought on the BRB hype these previous few months … together with Diplo, Janelle Monae, Hasbulla, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Seth Rollins and extra. Everyone appeared to like these.
The purple boots would possibly’ve appeared goofy at first, however because it seems … individuals bought on board and truly rocked ’em — which suggests … these two-way sneakers may most likely catch on too!
