Judge Orders Lil Nas X’s Satan Nike Shoes to Be Taken Off the Market

A judge has stepped in to stop the very evil Lil Nas X‘s Satan Nike Shoes. A federal judge ordered the “Montero” superstar’s limited edition satantic-themed Air Max 97 shoes to stop being sold after Nike filed a trademark lawsuit against MSCHF Product Studio, the NYC company behind the shoes.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

“A federal judge has swooped in to stop Lil Nas X’s limited edition satanic-themed Air Max 97 shoes from being sold. Or at least, whatever has not already been shipped.

Earlier this week, after Lil Nas X introduced a shoe that may contain actual human blood, Nike filed a trademark lawsuit against MSCHF Product Studio, the New York-based design company the rapper partnered with to launch the shoes. Nike then followed up with a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction. In its suit, the shoe giant claims that the Satanic association will dilute its famous marks.”

Nike followed up with a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.

MSCHF’s attorneys argued that the 666 pairs of shoes are “not typical sneakers, but rather individually-numbered works of art that were sold to collectors for $1,018 each,” and just like an earlier limited-edition run of Jesus Shoes, these will be displayed as artistic pieces, even in museums.

You can’t mess with Nike, they want to make that money.
