Big Red Boot season may be over but fear not sneakerheads, MSCHF has another wild design that's sure to be seen everywhere this summer. The BWD Shoe is a multi-colour sneaker that offers owners two ways to slide their foot inside – one of which obviously resembles a backwards model. Photos of the product surfaced online late last month, and now, some of our favourite stars have been seen wearing them out and about. Among them is Donald Glover, who stepped out for the Brooklyn Nets vs. Orlando Magic game on Friday (April 7) in his fresh kicks.

While his footwear certainly stood out for its abnormal nature, the rest of the Swarm creators outfit allowed him to (mostly) blend in with the crowd. Glover donned a white tee with a QR code printed on it, a Hawaii cap, and classic blue jeans. He also carried a tan leather jacket with him, later draped over his leg while watching the NBA players tear up the court. The multi-talent's public appearance in the MSCHF shoes comes just days before their quickly approaching official release on April 11.

Others who got their hands on a pair of the BWD Shoe early include the Clermont Twins, who showed theirs off in their usual thirst-trappy fashion on Instagram. "BADDIES COME IN TWOS👯‍♀️," the sisters wrote in their caption, almost perfectly mimicking the twin emoji with their stance. Aside from the MSCHF sneakers, both Shannon and Shannade wore pink and white crew socks to their mid-calves, as well as tiny black lingerie sets, which markedly exposed their underboob. Finally, they completed their look with large cross chains covering their chests.

Over the next few days, it's entirely likely we'll see more stars sporting the BWD model, similar to the rollout that came along with the Big Red Boots earlier this year.
