Judge halts distribution of Lil Nas X’s ‘Satan shoes’ at Nike’s request — and buyers might not ever receive the $1,018 shoes they paid for.
What’s a brief history here?
The rapper, real name Montero Lamar Hill, collaborated with Brooklyn-based art collective MSCHF on the sneakers, which are a limited-edition design built on of a pair of Nike Air Max 97s.
The controversial shoes’ air bubble is filled with 60cc of red ink as well a drop of human blood, according to the rapper.
The shoes — which also feature a pentagram pendant, an embroidered “666,” and a Bible verse — retailed for $1,018 and went on sale Monday.
It is the opinion of this writer that the White Hats have stepped in and taken control of this demon and put a halt to his devilish scheme of creating hype and more followers with these “bloody” shoes!
