Nike Denies Any Involvement With Lil Nas X 'satan Shoes' Containing Human Blood

By | On March 28, 2021

The "Old Town Road" artist is collaborating with streetwear company MSCHF on the pentagram-sporting shoes, only 666 pairs of which will be on sale Monday.

The devil wears Prada — and now, according to rapper Lil Nas X, also wears custom Nike sneakers containing human blood.


The controversial kicks — apparently modified Nike Air Max 97s — are decorated with a pentagram pendant and a reference to Luke 10:18, a Bible verse about Satan's fall from heaven. They'll be sold for $1,018.

The sneakers also contain a drop of human blood in the sole, drawn from members of the MSCHF team, the company told NBC News on Sunday.

News of the shoes drew outrage over the Palm Sunday weekend, with some critics slamming both Lil Nas X and Nike. But Nike was quick to distance itself from the Satan Shoes, pointing out that they're custom adaptations of existing products.


“We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF,” the sportswear giant said in a statement. “Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them.”

MSCHF previously released a pair of modified Nike Air Max 97s called the “Jesus Shoes,” which contained holy water in its sole drawn from the River Jordan.


The release of the Satan Shoes coincides with Lil Nas X’s latest single, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” and its accompanying music video. In the video, Lil Nas X is seduced out of what appears to be the Garden of Eden, falls into hell and gives the devil a lap dance.

The music video has been viewed more than 29 million times since its release on Friday.

The rapper, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, put out a short YouTube video on Sunday titled “Lil Nas X Apologizes for Satan Shoe.” While holding the sneaker, Lil Nas X begins speaking and — before getting to the advertised apology — the video cuts to the clip from "Montero" of him giving the devil a lap dance.

He also tweeted a defense of the shoes on Sunday.
