Lil nas X drops satan sneakers; Nike denies collaboration.
Nike has been getting a lot of heat at the idea that they would collaborate with Lil Nas X on his “Satan Sneaker” release. They have been responding to the critics in absolutely denial that they are connected to the sneaker. Lil Nas X created the Nike Sneakers but not through offical affiliation with Nike. While, Nike was concerned about keeping their image clean and friendly, they will be missing out as the “Satan Sneakers” will definitely be a hot seller. Collecters and resellers will jump to cop these. The sleek sneaks are a statement piece but also stylish.
“Satan Sneakers” will be a hot commodity.
Yes, the “Satan Sneakers” really contain blood.
Lil Nas X created his own custom Nike air max. The sneakers are being sold in tantem with his “Montero” video release. The singer dubbed them Satan shoes. They are Nike’s classic Air Max ’97 black sneakers with pentagram pendant through the laces. In the sole will be a mixture of red ink and one drop of blood. MSCHF staff take the blood, sweat, and tears idiom a little too literal as they donated their own blood for each Lil Nas X’s Santan Sneaker. Lil Nas X purchased the shoes and customized them independently with MSCHF. It will be a limited release.
Only 666 will be released with the outrageous price tag of $1,018. The price tag is significant because it refers to the Luke 10:18 scripture referenced directly on the shoe. For those unfamiliar with the scripture, it references Satan’s fall from heaven. It’s devilish details like those that set these sneakers apart and makes it a hell of a buy.
Lil Nas X is no stranger to controversy. The rapper/singer came out openly gay and since then, he continues to push the envelope. Whether it was created for controversy or simply just for trolling purposes, you must admit these sneaks are hot. The black and red combination is dope. The release for these is march 29th.
Reactions have been across the board. Christians are up in arms while the The Church of Satan replied to the announcement, saying: “Hook us up with a pair fam.”
What does Lil Nas X have to say?
Well he released this youtube clip.
During the video, Lil Nas X pretends to apologize and then leads in to giving the devil a lapdance. Needless to say, Lil Nas X ain’t sweatin’ any critic and is just having a blast with it, totally unbothered.
