MSCHF, the sub-label of Brooklyn-based art collective, has recently taken over social media with their latest product: the Big Red Boots. Inspired by the manga and anime character *Astro Boy* from the *Mighty Atom* series, the shoes have yet to be released but have already become a viral sensation. The shoes feature a large lip collar to give it a cartoon-esque effect. They are made of red EVA foam and are similar to the character's shoes from 1952. The *Mighty Atom* series ran for 16 years and had 112 chapters, making it a culturally significant piece of work.
