American rapper Montero Lamar Hill also known as Lil Nas X, is being sued by popular sport brand Nike, over copyrights.
The sports brand has accused the rapper of collaboration with MSCHF in releasing a controversial copy of it’s ‘Nike Air Max 97s’ and called it “Satan Shoes”.
‘Satan Shoes’ is decorated with a pentagram pendant and a reference from the Holy Bible, Luke 10:18, which speaks on Satan’s fall from Heaven.
According to NBC news, MSCHF produced 666 pairs of the shoes which sold out on Monday. The paper also confirmed that the shoes contained a drop of human blood inside the sole, drawn from members of the MSCHF team.
The lawsuit accused MSCHF for confusing the market space with it’s imitation.
“In fact, there is already evidence of significant confusion and dilution occurring in the marketplace, including calls to boycott Nike in response to the launch of MSCHF’s Satan Shoes based on the mistaken belief that Nike has authorized or approved this product,” the lawsuit says.
