Nike reaches settlement with ‘Satan shoe’ maker


NEW YORK – Nike has agreed on a settlement with the company behind the “Satan shoes” that the shoe giant said was a trademark infringement.

In collaboration with rapper Lil Nas X, Brooklyn studio MSCHF had developed 666 pairs of customized Nike Air Max 97s with a drop of human blood in the midsole.

Nike sued MSCHF over the sneakers following a boycott by customers who associated Nike with the Satan shoes.

MSCHF has issued a voluntary recall for the Satan shoes and offered a full refund on the original retail price and shipping costs. The Satan shoes sold out as soon as they were released last month.

The company also issued the same recall for a previously released Jesus shoes that contained holy water in the sole.

“We have agreed to settle the lawsuit,” MSCHF said in an email. “As part of the settlement, Nike has asked us, and we have agreed, to initiate a recall in order to remove the Satan Shoes and the Jesus Shoes from circulation.”

“This is a voluntary recall: it is totally within your rights to choose whether to return your Satan Shoes or Jesus Shoes,” according to MSCHF.
