Over the past few days the “Old Town Road” rapper has began promoting his new song and music video which many people find very controversial, and to go along with the theme of the video the rapper teamed up with the company MSFT to release “Satan Shoes”.

The shoes are limited to 666 pairs and each contained a drop of real human blood. This raised concerns of many online and some saying that they will never wear a pair of Nike shoes again. To be clear, Nike was not involved in this situation at all. The company MSFT bought pairs of the classic Air Max ’97 and customized them to become “Satan shoes”. Nike has since filed a lawsuit to sue to company over many different issues and some can be seen in the post below.
