MSCHF ‘Big Red Boots’ Release Date and Price Confirmed
Who thought a spin-off Astro Boy sneaker could steal the limelight from one of the biggest sneaker releases we’ve seen since the Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1? Well, Brooklyn-based art collective MSCHF thought so, and they’ve sent the internet into a spin with their Big Red Boots.
In case you needed a reminder, this is the same company that brought us Lil Nas X’s “Satanic” Air Max 97s with real human blood, the $98K “Birkinstocks” Made from Real Hermès Bags, and the WD-40-inspired Cologne so you won’t be surprised to hear the Big Red Boots are one hundred per cent real, wearable, and they’re releasing to the general public on February 16th at 11 a.m. ET at mschf.com.

MSCHF’s Big Red Boots Release Information
Release date: February 16th at 11 a.m. ET
Where to buy: mschf.com, MSCHF sneakers app.
Price: $350 USD
Paying homage to the shoes worn by Astro Boy, MSCHF says the boots can be worn, although, they’re not anything more than a statement fashion piece, saying they’re “really not shaped like feet, but extremely shaped like boots.”
In the days since the Big Red Boots were announced we’ve seen them worn by a number of fashion influencers, including NBA All-Star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Of course, they look absolutely ridiculous, but we’ve also seen the troubles fans have had to go through in getting them on and off. In a video posted by @lilap3 on TikTok, you can see how you need two people to physically remove the boots from your feet. Nobody said fashion was glamorous.
