Astro Boy Inspires MSCHF's Big Red Boots


Adam Cheung
February 9, 2023

These boots are quite literally out of this world.

Here at Ox Street HQ, we're massive fans of weird sneakers, but MSCHF's Big Red Boots takes the cake as one the craziest kicks of the entire year. The Brooklyn-based collective is world-renowned for dropping some of the wackiest pairs that we've ever seen. From the AC.1 to the Wavy Baby, nothing even comes close to these. Seemingly inspired by the shoes that Astro Boy dons in the manga and anime series, if you want something in your collection that's sure to turn heads wherever you go, you're looking at them right here.

Painted in a fiery all-red color scheme, the aptly named Big Red Boots are crafted from a one-piece TPU rubber shell with an EVA midsole down below for a unrivaled comfort and cushioning with every step. Depending on your height, the ankle portion extends way past your calvas, while the shoe itself boasts a curvaceous design that slopes down with ease. All of this sits on top of a ridged outsole that's embellished with "MSCHF" down below, acting as the only form of branding on the entire boot.

"If you kick someone in these boots they go BOING!" states MSCHF. "You never design shoes to be shaped like feet. Big Red Boots are REALLY not shaped like feet, but they are EXTREMELY shaped like boots."

The MSCHF Big Red Boots are set to release on February 16th and are expected to be a pretty difficult cop. With that said, you can secure your size right now at Ox Street, so grab it before someone else does! While you're here, you might as well check out the next sacai x Nike collaboration here.
