The “devil shoes” designed by rapper Lil Nas X mimic Nike’s famous Air Maxi. Nike has resigned harshly from the entire rapture.
Plasterer Lil Nas X, real name Montero Lamar Hill, has designed a new shoe collection that has garnered a lot of attention in the United States, says CNN. Rapper’s shoes carry the name “Satan Shoes”, Which refers to the devil.
The black and red-toned shoes feature several symbols to attach to the theme, such as a bronze-colored pentagram, an inverted cross, and even a drop of real human blood.
Lil Nas X has showcased the shoes on her own social media channels.
According to CNN, 666 shoes are on sale. There is red dye on the sole of the shoes, but also “one drop” of real human blood. According to an MSCHF spokesperson, human blood has been donated from members of the arts community.
– We love to sacrifice for the sake of art, commented CNN.
The shoes are priced at $ 1,018, or about $ 865. Price is a direct reference to Luke 10:18, which says, “Satan was cast out of heaven like lightning”.
The shoe design follows the famous Nike Air Max shoes, and they were made in collaboration with the New York brand MSCHF, however, Nike has publicly renounced the rapper’s shoe collection and stresses that they have nothing to do with the shoes.
– We have no relationship with Lil Nas or the MSCHF brand. These shoes have not been designed or released by Nike and we do not endorse them, Nike comments to CNN.
The shoes caused a huge flood of feedback over the weekend. Several public figures also criticized the shoes on social media. For example, the governor of South Dakota Kristi Noem and pastors Mark Burns knocked out the idea of shoes completely. According to Burns, shoes are pure evil and heresy. Lil Nas fans, in turn, supported the rapper.
As a result of the uproar, Lil Nas decided to comment on the matter on his own Youtubeon its channel. He titled his video “Lil Naz apologizes”. Lil Nas starts his speech at the beginning of the video, but soon the apology breaks and the rapper’s new music video begins to run Montero (Call Me By Your Name), where he dances in a provocative style with an actor dressed as the devil. In the video, the rapper deprives the devil of his life and takes his crown. The video has already been viewed 1.8 million times.
The MSCHF, which implemented the shoes, is known for its scandalous snatches. In 2019, they released a limited edition Jesus-themed shoe with a steel crucifix and “holy water”.
