Lil Nas X Satan shoes
In late March 2021, the country rapper came under harsh backlash after releasing 666 custom-made Satan shoes with a pentagram pendant, a reference to Luke 10:18, and allegedly a drop of human blood in the sole. All the 666 limited editions of the shoe were sold out as soon as they were released.
The shoe is a modification of the Nike Air Max 97, but Nike distanced itself from the controversy, saying it did not collaborate with the rapper or MSCHF. Nike later sued MSCHF, the shoe designers, for trademark infringement.
The openly gay rapper later released a Lil Nas X apology that did not seem like one. In the video, he talked a bit about the ongoing backlash, and then a video from his recently released Montero song of him giving the devil a lap dance starts playing.
