Nike Says They Have Nothing to Do with Lil Nas X’s Satanic Blood Shoes

LIL NAS X had quite the weekend.

He dropped a song called “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” along with a racy video that builds up to him seducing Satan with a lap dance before snapping his neck and taking his horns.

Then he announced he was teaming with the company MSCHF to create a line of Nike Air Max 97s which have been called “Satan Shoes” because they have Satanic imagery and they supposedly contain a drop of human blood. Don’t worry though – it’s just one drop that’s supposedly mixed in with the ink used to color them so everything’s normal here.

All of the above obviously stirred up some controversy so now Nike came out to say that they have no idea what this is all about. They said, “We don’t have a relationship with Lil Nas X or MSCHF. Nike did not design or release these shoes, and we do not endorse them.”

Apparently, this is an unofficial thing where MSCHF is modifying the Nike shoes. MSCHF says they’re making 666 of them because of course they are.
