Nike Sues MSCHF Over Lil Nas X ‘Satan Shoes’

Published: Monday 29th Mar 2021 by Sam

Nike is none too impressed with MSCHF‘s sneaker collaboration with Lil Nas X. 

Dubbed the ‘Satan Shoe,’ the limited-edition sneakers touted as a collector’s item – with exactly “666” pairs produced.

Critiqued for being blasphemous, the shoe is a reworked take on Nike Air Max ’97’s and bears the bible scripture Luke 10:18 – which refers to the story of “Satan fall(ing) like lightning from heaven.” The $1,018 price-point reflects the verse too.

What’s more, each pair is touted as featuring real human blood.

Its retail arrival was clearly timed to coincide with Nas’ video for ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ -which saw the star twerk on Satan.

Nike, however, wants nothing to do with it and is heading to court to make its point clear.

Full story below…

The sportswear giant has filed suit against MSCHF, the company Nas teamed up with

It’s suing for trademark infringement and dilution, as well as unfair competition.

Per THR, Nike is seeking compensatory, statutory and punitive damages, plus disgorgement of profits in an amount to be determined, and is asking the court to order that the shoes and all marketing materials be turned over to Nike for destruction.

The complaint read:

“The material alterations include at least referring to the shoe as the Satan Shoe, adding red ink and human blood to the midsole, adding red embroidered satanic-themed detailing, adding a bronze pentagram to the laces, and adding a new sock liner,There is already evidence of significant confusion and dilution occurring in the marketplace, including calls to boycott Nike in response to the launch of MSCHF’s Satan Shoes based on the mistaken belief that Nike has authorized or approved this product.”

Nas, who isn’t being sued himself, responded with a Spongebob clip:

    The way he ruined the hype for his song (which is actually a bop). Sigh. I was rooting for you, but this was too far

    This talentless troll 💀

    The music industry is so dead.

    All that trolling Lil Nas did for his shoes to sell out….and the profits are going straight into Nike’s pockets instead of his own. I wonder how he’s feeling right about now.

    Damn, mschf is a new company too, doubt they can afford this lawsuit. Wonder if they will force lil nas x to give a real apology publicly to avoid this money. Tbh it was disgusting as well as the video, all people involved with that music video are going to hell. And during Easter weekend? Just disrespectful. It’s ridiculous how ppl get up in arms if u criticize Muslim religion or jews but ppl are allowed to disrespect Christianity and it’s seen as fun

      THIS. I need to see these artists have that same energy for Islam.

    Nas not getting sued yet. Nike is waiting for him to continue messing up. Every time he posts that shoe with their logo on it their case against him gets stronger.

    Good Luck MONTERO 😈🔥🔥🔥

  8. Tori March 29, 2021

    This, THIS IS WHY ARTIST NEED “ARTIST DEVELOPMENT” Lis stupid axx has waisted time and money trying to get people talking and it’s backfired on him and his partnership. This is why I said in the previous post to move on and let it die down.

    Fake, Nike knew about it, that was the deal.
