Art collective MSCHF has collaborated with footwear brand Crocs to design a pair of oversized yellow boots with "distinctive" holes.
Called Big Red Boots (Yellow), the shoes are the latest iteration of jumbo boots by MSCHF, which previously designed a similar pair of red boots modelled on those worn by the manga character Astro Boy.
The yellow boots feature the same cartoony shape, characterised by a chunky upper section that extends to the mid-calf. However, they are also punctuated by the recognisable holes that define Crocs' Classic Clogs.
A heel strap emblazoned with the Crocs logo is also attached to the back of the boots.

"We're mixing two samples to create something totally transformed and instantly recognisable," said MSCHF, which will make the footwear available in a limited drop next month.
"Crocs' distinctive hole pattern and strap get transposed onto the Big Red Boot silhouette," added the art collective.
The yellow boots were debuted by Estonian rapper Tommy Cash during the Rick Owens Spring Summer 2024 menswear show at Paris Fashion Week in June, while he was playfully dressed and performing as a mime artist in the front row.
MSCHF has also released imagery of American media personality Paris Hilton wearing the shoes combined with a bright yellow and black motorcycle-style outfit.
Known for its alternative creations, MSCHF has previously collaborated with musician Lil Nas X to create Nike trainers customised with human blood – a move that resulted in Nike suing the art collective.
Recently, MSCHF designed a replica of a Louis Vuitton bag that is "smaller than a grain of salt" as a critique of the world of luxury fashion.
Other footwear projects that have sparked conversation include a chunky, bristly running shoe outsole by Central Saint Martins graduate Kiki Grammatopoulos, who created the footwear to help spread plants and seeds in cities as part of a project she's titled Rewild the Run.
