About this deal

Part of what comes with the word experiment is chasing after concepts that are varied and dissimilar. If irony has been used many times in the past by more or less famous designers - above all Jeremy Scott from Moschino, on the other hand, it is undeniable that in MSCHF's provocative game, something would seem to be broken: born as a critique of consumerism and hype culture, has the collective perhaps become a victim of its own game? The anime adaptation from 1963 currently ranks second on the “Greatest Anime of All Time” list and, according to Nippon, the first popular anime television series. Astro Boy, known in Japan by its original name Mighty Atom or Tetsuwan-Atomu, has inspired a lot of anime and other media since its inception in 1952.

Underfoot, the ribbed outsole presents the design collective’s only branding on the boot, with “MSCHF” engrained into both sides of the shoe.

As the dust begins to settle on MSCHF’s forthcoming drop, let’s just take a moment to relax and psyche ourselves up for whatever’s coming next. Looking to the shores of Japan for inspiration, MSCHF recently teased their latest creation, the Big Red Boots, inspired by the legendary manga and anime character Astro Boy. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. The boots are said to be inspired by the classic anime series Astroboy (Or Boy Atom, depending where you grew up).

We wanted to create objects that would go beyond art galleries, as opposed to the work we did in college,» Bentel explained. Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few days, you’ve definitely seen MSCHF’s big, red Astro Boy inspired boots. Every one will love this cute toy,especially kids will be eye-catching by the adorable appearance then have a good childhood companion. While many sources nowadays claim that Astro Boy’s boots were inspired by the footwear of American football players, which were popular in Japan at the time, Tezuka actually took the inspiration from roller skates. When Astro Boy anime was first broadcast in the United States, it inspired a surge of interest in all things Japanese, which included fashion, and Astro Boy’s boots were at the forefront of this trend from the 1960s through the 1990s.They’re almost a perfect replica and a wearable model of the character’s shoes made entirely out of red EVA foam. Unfortunately, unlike their anime counterpart, these only go up to mid-calf in height, lack any MSCHF branding, and don’t have any kind of propulsion system — the lack of the latter is really a shame. You can't deny how celebrity endorsements can sway people - the moment music producer Diplo and social media influencer Sarah Snyder, among others, featured these kicks on their Instagram feed, people - both sneakerheads and non-sneakerheads alike - took notice. From a technical perspective, the BRB pushes the envelope of its single-mold-shell design, simply because it is really large," Greenberg says. Roller skates often grant their wearer speed and agility; Astro’s boots do the same, but by different means, as they’re equipped with futuristic and practical technology.
