Nike Satan Shoes?!? – Lil Nas X New Release. The drama started when it was first reported on Friday (March 26) by @saint, that Nas X was dropping a pair of limited edition “Satan Shoes;” allegedly filled with one drop of human blood & 66cc of red ink in a take on the familiar Air Max 97. Reportedly, they’ll retail for $1,080 and be limited to 666 pairs.
For many, even despite supporting Nas X’s “Montero” video; where he is seen dancing with the devil, this was the last straw. The reaction was swift and emotional, with many crying foul that Nike would collaborate on such a shoe. Many were quick to react before thinking that it’s a 99.99% chance that the Nike brand never would; while also neglecting that anyone can make a custom shoe.
The Satan Shoes are a collab with MSCHF, which is touted as a Brooklyn-based “ideas factory” that creates viral ready products for sale online. One of their past drops was a pair of “Jesus Shoes” that were Air Max 97’s outfitted with Holy Water. But ya know, details and facts.
So far, Lil Nas X is standing firm behind the design of his kicks. “Y’all gotta admit… the shoe hard!,” he tweeted on Sunday morning (March 28). “u cannot sit here and lie.”
