Lil Nas X has collaborated with streetwear brand MSCHF on a pair of custom Nike Air Max 97s they are calling “Satan Shoes”. The controversial sneakers have been decorated with a pentagram pendant and a reference to a bible verse about Satan. The shoes also contain a drop of blood in the sole from a member of the MSCHF team. The sneakers are limited edition, with just 666 pairs that will be sold for $1,018. Nike said in a statement that it “did not design or release” the custom sneakers and the company does not “endorse them”. The release of the shoes coincides with the release of Lil Nas X’s latest single 'MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’. The music video for the song shows the rapper giving Satan a lap dance. The video, which has received widespread criticism and praise online, currently has over 31 million views on YouTube.
