MSCHF Big Red Boots sell out in seconds
NEW YORK - The oversize MSCHF Big Red Boot shoes that had become a viral sensation after celebrities were seen wearing them the past few weeks sold out in seconds after they went on sale on Thursday morning.
The huge, cartoonish red boots look like something the video game character Mega Man or legendary anime character Astro Boy would wear. "Cartoon boots for a cool 3D world," the press release for the shoes described them.
They went on sale at 11 a.m. for $350 a pair and were all gone in seconds. It was unclear how many were sold. They are already being sold for much higher prices on the secondary market.
MSCHF is behind the product. It is a Brooklyn-based art collective that is known for some wild product designs.
