Brooklyn-based creative studio MSCHF has become synonymous with outlandish footwear creations that speak volumes. The brand recently released its Super Normal 2 model in “Mint Green,” which featured distorted panels that give off a melting effect — while growing global buzz during the drop of its Astro Boy-inspired Big Red Boots a few weeks prior.

For its latest wild invention that deserves a second…or tenth look, MSCHF reveals the “BWD” sneaker. The two-way silhouette is likely the first of its kind, boasting dual foot entrances allowing for multiple styling options. In addition, standard toe boxes — usually concealed and ventilated — are completely unlatched, while customary compartments are also left open for a mule-like design.

The rest of the sneaker remains simple, featuring white leather uppers (or whatever is left of them) with pierced medial decor and striped ankle graphics. Reminiscent of ’90s skate shoes, it dons a chunky outline complemented by red suede heel counters with MSCHF’s triple exclamation point motif and arrows that might signal correct wearability. Finally, cautionary branding continues across the pair, stacked atop angular speckled midsoles and ribbed gum bottoms.

Take a closer look at the MSCHF BWD in the gallery above. The sneaker is scheduled to drop on April 11 exclusively via the MSCHF app.

Elsewhere, Nia Archives and Jeshi reflect London’s dynamic energy in Nike Air Max Pulse campaign.
