As indicated by NBC, The “Old Town Road” craftsman worked with MSCHF to deliver “Satan Shoes” on Monday. The tennis shoes are altered Nike Air Max 97s — improved with a pentagram pendant and a reference to Luke 10:18, a Bible section about Satan’s tumble from paradise.
MSCHF, an organization known for making disputable and viral items, affirmed Sunday that the shoes contained a drop of human blood inside the sole, drawn from individuals from the MSCHF group.
Every one of the 666 sets of the changed Nikes, valued at $1,018, sold out not long after they went at a bargain Monday. Nike recorded the suit — Lil Nas X was not named as a litigant — after numerous individuals said they trusted it was engaged with the shoes, despite the fact that it delivered an explanation over the course of the end of the week saying it had nothing to do with them.
The claim contends that Nike should keep up power over its image “by clearing up everything” about what items bear its unmistakable “swoosh” logo.
