At the request of Nike, a judge has halted the sale of Lil Nas X's “Satan Shoes.” As previously reported, Nike sued MSCHF for trademark and infringement after the company partnered with Lil Nas X to customize the Air Max 97s that are said to feature a drop of human blood. The also asked a judge to block the sale of the shoes.
The court granted the brand's request yesterday (April 1st) and for a temporary order against MSCHF, which blocks the company from fulfilling any orders.
The sneakers — which were going for $1,018, sold out of its 666 pairs within minutes when it went on sale earlier this week. Due to the restraining order, MSCHF will not be allowed to ship them to customers awaiting the shoe.
After Lil Nas X announced the shoe, Nike immediately released a statement saying that they had no connection to the shoe or Lil Nas X and that they did not authorize the production of them.
