It is the year 2021 and you can now buy shoes “demon shoes” that have a real drop of human blood. Or you can – if they sell out no less than a minute after they start. The shoes, which the American rapper Lil Nash X launched in collaboration with the Brooklyn-based coating company MSCHF, are adorned with a pentagram and the number 666.
The blood is believed to have been mixed with ink by employees of the coating company MSCHF to fill a breeze. Bubble in every pair of “devil shoes”. Black and red sneakers were made with the Nike Air Max 97. According to CNN, the shoes were sold out within a minute of launch.
However, Nike has distanced himself from demonic shoes. According to Reuters, Nike said in the lawsuit that MSCHF Product Studios Inc. infringed its trademark and watered it down with black and red devil-themed shoes that went on sale online Monday. Lil Nas X is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
Multiple media outlets reported that the shoes sold for less than a minute, priced at $ 1,018 per pair. Lil Nas X said on Twitter that he would select the recipient of the 666th couple from social media users to send one of their tweets.
Nike said in his lawsuit in New York federal court that the shoes were made “without Nike’s approval ” and that the company was “in no way involved in the project.”
While a legal controversy unfolded, Twitter was both disgusted as well as amused by the satan shoes.
The Grammy-winning rapper, 21, on Friday released a video for new song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” in which he dances with a character wearing devil horns – and the Satan shoes.
