Jimmy Fallon reveals his first signature shoe that gets better with wear

Jimmy Fallon revealed his new signature shoe on The Tonight Show, Monday. The sneaker is named the Gobstomper and was made by MSCHF, the same design group which Nike sued last year for selling Lil Nas X themed shoes with human blood in the soles.

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

The shoes are based on Gobstopper candies, which like traditional jawbreakers, are layered in the 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.

While the shoe doesn’t have any fancy human blood in it, at least it will make stubbing your toe a little more colorful.

The Gobstomper has an advertised price of $195 and drops on Thursday, July 20th at 1:00 P.M. EST.
