Satantic Sneakers Suit

Lil Nas X partnered with MSCHF for limited-edition sneakers to be released in conjunction with his latest song (and epic video), “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”.  When I saw the prototype, I was shocked.  Unless Nas was in business with Nike, this was obviously trademark infringement.  Aside from appropriating the Nike logo, the company’s Air Max design was clearly copied.  I expected a suit, I didn’t expect it would be about blood.  Oh, yes – each of Lil Nas X’s limited edition of 666 pairs allegedly includes a drop of human blood!  BTW, MSCHF previously produced Jesus Shoes, which allegedly had a drop of water from the River Jordan…blessed by a priest!  Nike was outraged.  “We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF.  Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them,” said the sneaker giant – and you’ve gotta love a corporate press release that refers to Nas as “Little”.  They demanded all the shoes be destroyed.  Problem is, they’ve already “soled” out!
