666 (which also happens to be the devil’s number), pairs of shoes were made and they were sold out within seconds of release. Nike accused MSCHF of trademark infringement after it appeared to use the Air Max 97 shoe for inspiration for its Satan shoes.
The shoe contains red ink and a drop of human blood to the midsole. MSCHF collaborated with Lil Nas X, after the release of his song, ‘Montero’ (Call me by your name).

The fact is, it is not even a shoe from Nike! This means MSCHF spoofed the World with Nike’s Swoosh Logo!
The retail giant stated that MSCHF’s ‘unauthorized’ Nike-inspired shoe confused the audience into thinking Nike had created the product. Nike also alleged MSCHF’s use of the ‘Swoosh’ insignia, misled customers.
Nike also claimed that customers had called for a boycott of the company over MSCHF’s shoe.
All-star basketball player, Nick Young was very disappointed by this initiative and tweeted saying:
My kids will never play Old Town road again.. I’m still debating about wearing @Nike after this come nike a drop of blood for real

Nike is also demanding that MSCHF pay for the cost of the lawsuit and lawyer fee on top of damages, as they suffered harm to their reputation.
Nike also alleged that it had suffered ‘significant harm to its goodwill’, including customers who felt Nike is endorsing Satanism. They asked the Court to order MSCHF to destroy all the products that bore the resemblance to Nike.

As mentioned before, they were sold out precisely under one minute, claimed Insider Monday morning, after they were told the same by MSCHF. 666 pairs were sold for $1,018 each.
Luke 10:18, which can be seen in the front right side of the shoe, was taken from the Bible, which means, “So he told them, I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven”.
Nike previously told the New York Times that they had no involvement in this initiative. “We don’t have a relationship with Lil Nas X or MSCHF. Nike did not redesign or release these shoes, and we do not endorse them”. The company stated in a statement to the NY Times.
MSCHF which can also be metaphorically pronounced as mischief earlier turned several pairs of Air Max 97’s into Jesus-inspired sneakers!!
They were filled with Holy water that came from the Jordan River and was blessed by a priest! They sold a single pair for $3,000.
Rapper Lil Nas X responded to the news with a meme of Squidward Tentacles, from SpongeBob Squarepants, much like how he had been responding to the criticisms of his song’s music video.
