TikTok's obsessed with the MSCHF big red boots, but we have *a lot* of questions

When it comes to the MSCHF big red boots, cost and practicality don't appear to be on shoppers' radars

If you thought UGG slippers were impractical, meet the MSCHF big red boots: cost, comfort and practicality aren't high on shoppers' lists, as the coveted jumbo shoe has skyrocketed to fame on TikTok. 

In between beauty hacks like the Korean blush nail trend and dating how-to's (looking at you, triangle method!), the video app has stumbled upon these designer boots that look like something straight outta Mario Kart. But regardless, it seems everyone has to have MSCHF's "cartoon boots for a 3D world."

A little product info about the viral accessory: they're rubber, are meant to blend "virtual and IRL aesthetics" and are "not really shaped like feet but they are extremely shaped like boots," according to the brand's website. If you need to be anywhere in a hurry while wearing these shoes, we wish you the best of luck, though we suspect they come in handy when it's raining.

Will you be snagging a pair when they hit shelves, or will you leave the trend to your favorite cartoon characters?
