Nike + Lil Nas X’s Satan Shoes War Settled
The rap star’s controversial Satan Shoes will never make it to true diehard fans’ feet. Reports claimed sports apparel giant Nike settled a lawsuit with the manufacturer responsible for putting out the “MONTERO”-inspired sneakers onto the market.
According to reports, Nike settled its lawsuit after a publicized war in April 2021 against Nas X and his sneaker collaborator. Part of the agreement was for the kicks to never see the light of day. However, Nas X will be back in court today over the copyright infringement.
Nike tells TMZ … it’s reached an agreement with MSCHF, the company producing the custom shoes based on Nike’s Air Max 97. The so-called Satan Shoes were inspired by Lil Nas’ demonic-themed music video for his new song, “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).” The footwear giant tells us the settlement calls for MSCHF to launch a voluntary recall to buy back all Satan Shoes it’s sold for their original retail prices in order to remove them from circulation.
