Lil Nas X Trolls Those Upset By His ‘Satan Shoes’ That Contain 1 Drop Of Human Blood

Lil Nas X is responding to those who are upset over his special edition Nike Air Max ’97 “Satan Shoes” inspired by the video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name”.

Playing off the Devil theme of the hit music video, the shoes include the Luke 10:18 scripture which is “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven”, 60cc ink and one drop of human blood in the sole.

The blood was taken from a member of the streetwear company MSCHF, who has collaborated on the shoes.

Only 666 pairs will be made, with each one individually numbered. The shoes will go for sale on March 29 for $1,018.

Shortly after the shoes were announced, Lil Nas X posted a video on YouTube titled “Lil Nas X Apologizes for Satan Shoes”.

“Okay guys, I see everybody’s been talking about this shoe, and I just want to come forward and say,” he starts to say before the apology cuts to his music video.

Nike did clarify that they did not design the shoes nor do they “endorse them.”

“We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF,” Nike told NBC. “Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them.”

Lil Nas X celebrated the song surpassing 10 million views on YouTube and hitting No. 1 on Spotify by posting a video on Twitter thanking fans, adding he doesn’t take it for “granted”.

The rapper has faced backlash for his video, with some saying it isn’t appropriate for kids. But he had the perfect response, tweeting, “since everybody watching this music video and saying ‘what about the kids’ it would be a great time to talk about the ones still being kept in cages.”

Like his music video, the reaction to the shoes was also mixed.
