Jimmy Fallon Teams With MSCHF for the Gobstomper, a Colourful Sneaker With Wear-Away DetailingRelease: 28 July 2022
It's been an eventful 2022 in sneakers for the merry band of mischief makers at MSCHF, the Brooklyn-based creative studio known for lampooning pop culture and creating viral moments. They broke the Internet (and got sued by Vans) over their Wavy Baby sneaker and twice reworked the Air Force 1 to create models dubbed Super Normal and TAP3. Now, they're back with another pair of wild kicks – and this time, they've brought Jimmy Fallon along for the ride. Fallon and MSCHF have teamed up to create the Gobstomper, a skate-inspired silhouette with wear-away detailing.
Fallon's personal skateboarding experience may be limited to pretending to skate while joining the @doggface420 challenge on TikTok in 2021, but the campaign for his shoes with MSCHF shows him taking a handful of nasty slams at the skatepark. Fallon's fallin' serves a purpose besides incurring grins, and it's to wear down the Gobstomper, showing off the Gobstopper-inspired layers of bright colour hidden behind its plain white nubuck upper.
Other Gobstomper details include MSCHF's exclamation point logo on the tongue tag and a colourful outsole pattern centred around the brand's foot logo. Small graphic hits can also be seen on the heel, and the shoe's brightly-coloured base layer peeks through on the trim, foxing and midsole.
If you're looking to add a pair of Gobstompers to your rotation, you'll be able to do so on July 28 when they hit the MSCHF Sneakers app at 1 PM EST.
