Americans will not have “Satan Shoes” to kick around any longer now that Nike has actually settled a lawsuit with MSCHF, the New York-based style studio that developed 666 pairs for rapper Lil Nas X.
Nike sued MSCHF late last month after the shoes were announced as part of a promo for the video for “Montero (Call Me by Your Name),” in which Lil Nas X offers Satan a lap dance.
Although the shoes were meant as a limited-edition art job using Nike shoes as the base, Nike implicated MSCHF of hallmark infringement and argued that “unapproved” shoes would, among other things, “produce an incorrect association between MSCHF’s items and Nike.”
According to Yahoo, the settlement needs MSCHF to voluntary buy back any Satan Shoes and the companion “Jesus Shoes” that Lil Nas X jokingly claimed he was developing in reaction to those offended by the devil-inspired shoes so they can be eliminated from circulation.
The sportswear giant did not reveal additional details of the statement, which appears below.
EntertainmentBurrow connected to Lil Nas X, who did not right away respond.
It appears he might be more concentrated on turning 22 on Friday, based upon this tweet he published with an extremely particular birthday present request.
