WHEN it comes to shoes, there are few more divisive than the cartoonishly large red MSCHF boots.
And one man decided to see what his parents made of the knee-high boots, by splashing out on a £400 pair himself.
Nnamdi took to TikTok to share a video, over the top of which he wrote: "Wearing the famous big red boots to surprise my parents".
After showing what he looked like in the boots, which he teamed with joggers and a white sweatshirt, he turned the camera to show what his mum and dad made of the unique footwear.
His dad clocked them first, before calling his mum and saying: "Come and see what Nnamdi is wearing."
His mum then walked into the frame and squealed as she exclaimed: "What is this?"

When Nnamdi told his parents that they were his new shoes, his dad insisted: "That's what they wear in the Amazon rainforest."
"How much did you buy this?" his mum asked.
And his response that he'd spent £400 on the boots earned gasps from the pair, with his dad even dropping to his knees in shock.
"Gnome shoes," his mum said.
