I don’t think I’ve ever wanted anything so bad in my entire life.
People are rocking these giant, red, cartoon-esque rubber boots that look like they were taken straight off the pages of a cartoon feature. And y’all, I actually want them!
Sure, I might look absolutely ridiculous sporting big, red, rubber boots, but that wouldn’t stop me from trying them on and pretending to be Astro Boy.
If you have spent any time on social media recently, you’ve surely seen these chunky red boots.
They are kind of everywhere.
But, where did they come from?
They were put out by MSCHF (pronounced “mischief,”) — an art collective based in Brooklyn.
CARTOONISHNESS IS AN ABSTRACTION THAT FREES US FROM THE CONSTRAINTS OF REALITY. IF YOU KICK SOMEONE IN THESE BOOTS THEY GO BOING!MSCHF
As soon as these cartoonish boots went on sale, they pretty much sold out.
We’re talking, they sold out in SECONDS.
But, be prepared to drop some money, because these boots are going for upwards of $1,500.
Not today, Satan!
I want them, but maybe not $1,500 worth of want, right?!?
For now, I will just have to admire them from afar, and live vicariously through the people sporting them on sites like TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram.
