Looks like Kanye West is getting the last laugh after all. After being relentlessly clowned for his own oversized black boots, the rapper's contemporaries are finally catching on to his ahead-of-the-curve style. An increasing number of celebrities are stepping out in MSCHF's Big Red Boots, including Lil Wayne.
Weezy is one of the most recent artists to hop on the trend. He's taken fashion risks in the past, and his latest look is certainly raising some eyebrows. On Saturday (February 11), the "Lollipop" hitmaker wore his bright boots while filming a music video with NLE Choppa. The shoes were obviously the most interesting part of his OOTD. The rest consisted of a long white shirt and baggy yellow and black striped shorts.
As XXL notes, Wayne is (literally) following in the footsteps of Fivio Foreign. The New Yorker was clowned for wearing the MSCHF boots on TikTok. Regardless of the hate they've been getting, the trendy footwear continues to appear on social media. Surprisingly, the public doesn't have access to them yet.
They're going on sale later this week for $350 USD on the official MSCHF website. The release will take place on February 16th, so you have time to prepare your bank account. However, it's worth noting that some resellers are already requesting over $2,000 for the highly anticipated boots.
If Wayne's look hasn't convinced you to purchase the BRBs, perhaps Coi Leray's will. She also spent her Saturday stepping out in the viral, Astroboy-inspired footwear, pairing them with a black and white bodysuit and sheer tights. Not only did the Trendsetter model them, but she also proved that they're easy to dance in while practicing with a crew behind her.
On her own Instagram feed, the Boston-born rap starlet posted a series of photos showing off her MSCHF shoes. At the same time, she thanked the Brooklyn Nets for having her at their game against the Philadelphia 76ers last night. See Coi's Big Red Boots below, and let us know if you'll be buying a pair later this month in the comments.
