On the heels of his controversial “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” music video, Lil Nas X is doubling down on the demonic imagery with new Nike release, “Satan Shoes.”
The classic Air Max ’97’s have been revamped by collaborators MSCHF with the underworld in mind, coming in a limited edition stock of 666 pairs, each individually numbered “x/666” in red embroidery. The kicks will also contain 66 CCs of red ink, as well as one drop of human blood.
Bible scripture Luke 10:18 is also emblazoned on the side. The passage references Satan’s banishment from heaven. There are also upside-down crosses and a pentagram attached to the shoe laces, as well as printed on it’s sole.…
Lil Nas X’s latest song and visual is said to have inspired the latest shoe’s design. The video for “MONTERO” features the 21-year-old descending into hell via a stripper pole, where he proceeds to show Satan his best moves during a lap dance.
I truly wish this weren’t true. But sadly it is. Oh, and only 666 pairs of these will be made.
This kind of attention whoring is a pathetic attempt to seem edgy. Edgy is what you do when you fear you don’t actually have enough talent to endure.
