On Monday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the host revealed his new signature sneaker. Fallon fulfilled his longtime dream with help from design group MSCHF. This is the same design team that was sued last year by Nike for modifying one of its shoes by filling the soles with human blood. Those shoes, which were associated with Lil Nas X, sold for more than $1,000 a pair.

“No, there's no blood in mine,” Fallon was quick to point out. “There's no blood in my sneaker!”

The shoes are named Gobstompers, which is a play on Gobstopper candy. Like traditional jawbreakers, Gobstoppers are layered in different colors.

“The idea behind this shoe is this, the more you wear it and wear it down and break it in, there's different layers of colors in the sneaker,” Fallon explained.

Designed in the style of a skateboarding shoe, the off-white suede and rubber shoes are layered in different colored materials. As the shoe gets scuffed, more color emerges from within the materials. So as Fallon said, “Every shoe will look different.”

The Gobstomper has an advertised price of $195 and drops on Thursday, July 28 at 1 p.m. EST.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
