An update to yesterday’s insanity!
LIL NAS X says all 666 pairs of his new “Satan shoes” sold out in under a minute at a cost of more than $1,000 a pair. The shoes are actually Nike Air Max 97s customized with a pentagram and, supposedly, a drop of blood mixed into the ink.
Nike, who actually had nothing to do with the shoes, is not happy about it and is suing MSCHF, the company that customized them. Lil Nas X isn’t named in the lawsuit, but that didn’t stop him from joking about Nike taking him to the cleaners.
I have two big questions in all this. 1) Who is paying over $1,000 for these things, and more importantly 2) whose blood did they use?
