Satan Shoes Sparks Controversy, Sold US $ 10,000 On Ebay!

 Rap singer, Montero Lamar Hill or known by his stage name, Lil Nas X sparked controversy recently when he released Nike shoes dubbed Satan Shoes.

The shoes were produced in collaboration with a streetwear company in Brooklyn, USA (USA), MSCHF.

The shoe has a picture of the inverted Cross sign and a pentagram logo. In addition, the shoe has the inscription ‘Luke 10:18’ which is a passage from the Bible that tells of the devil falling from heaven.

Most sparked controversy, when the shoes contained drops of blood of MSCHF employees. The blood droplets were injected into the sole of the shoe.

The shoes were also released in 666 units only, symbolic with devil numbers. Even so, the shoes, which sold for US $ 1,018, sold out in less than a minute.

After the shoes were sold out, some people resold Satan Shoes on Ebay for US $ 2,500 to US $ 10,000.

The shoes were released in conjunction with Lil Nas X's latest song entitled 'Montero, Call Me By Your Name'.

In the music video clip, Lil Nas X performs a dance action with the ‘devil’ and is punished in ‘hell’.

This is not the first time MSCHF has used ‘religion’ as a promotional measure they sell shoes. Previously, MSCHF had modified the Nike Air Max 97 shoes into ‘Jesus Shoe’.

If Satan Shoes is injected with human blood, Jesus Shoe shoes are injected with ‘holy water’.

Although the shoes sold are Nike Air Max 97 models, Nike denies that Satan Shoes has anything to do with the company.

As a result, Nike has filed a lawsuit against the MSCHF company.

Nike claims MSCHF has infringed on trademarks because the company has used the Nike logo and Air Max 97 design.

In fact, the launch of Satan Shoes also did not get Nike’s approval and sanction. People had previously wanted to boycott Nike for allowing the shoes to be launched but Nike vehemently denied that the launch of Satan Shoes had anything to do with the company.

After Nike filed a lawsuit against MSCHF, Lil Nas X just released a statement on Twitter with a 4 -second video showing a cartoon character, Squidward sitting in a box asking for donations along with writing a caption that reads ‘me after the Nike lawsuit’.
