Lil Nas X found himself in the midst of legal trouble between Nike and Company that produced his Satan shoes which use same trademark as giant sneaker brand.
According to TMZ, Nike claims the company’s tricking consumers into thinking it approved the Satan-themed shoes, but Nike insists it didn’t authorize it and “is in no way connected with this project.”
Nike claims MSCHF buys the shoes from Nike, then the artists it works with make their own creative modifications before selling them at a higher price.
Nike’s suing for trademark infringement because the famous Swoosh logo is still prominently featured on X’s shoes. It wants damages, and perhaps more importantly for Nas X … Nike wants the judge to block all sales of the Satan Shoe.
Recent, Lil Nas X announced collaboration with ‘MSCHF Product Studio’ to release a devil-themed show along with his music video, which are now being called the ‘blood shoes.’
On social media, Old Town Rod rapper is promoting the sneakers which have a pentagram symbol, a bible verse stitched on the side referencing the devil, and allegedly a drop of blood from one of the companies’ employees.
Nike files lawsuit against the company that producing that sneakers, Lil Nas X’s Satan shoes aren’t approved by the giant company.
