The design collective behind the controversial Satan Shoes has been sued by Nike.
MSCHF collaborated with rapper, Lil Nas X, and sold 666 pairs of the modified Nike Air Max 97s. All 666 pairs sold out in under a minute after the launch on the eve of Holy Week, the lead up to Easter.
The black and red modified shoes reportedly contain a drop of blood from the MSCHF employees in the soles. The Satan Shoes are embellished with pentagram pendants, the names of the collaborators, and the Bible verse Luke 10:18.
After Nike sued the design collective because they were unhappy with the modification, both parties agreed to settle out of court. MSCHF agreed to buy back every single pair from those that bought them at the same price that they sold them for. The shoes were sold at $1,018 per pair.
During the same time, Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, came out as gay publicly. He wrote a note to the 14-year-old version of himself and published it on social media.
