Nike & MSCHF Settle Lawsuit Over Lil Nas X's "Satan's Shoes"


Recommended Posts

When Lil Nas X and MSCHF revealed their "Satan Shoe" just a couple of weeks ago, social media exploded as many were upset that the artists involved would create a Nike Air Max 97 that has satanic imagery. Nike immediately distanced themselves from the shoe and immediately after the sneaker sold out completely, Nike got their legal eagles involved and sued MSCHF for purposely trying to trick people into thinking the shoe was an official Nike collaboration.

Nike was eventually able to halt the sale of the shoe, and now, according to Brendan Dunne of Sole Collector, the lawsuit has been settled. Essentially, MSCHF will now have a voluntary recall which means they must buy back all of the "Satan Shoes" that people don't want anymore. They must provide full refunds, no questions asked. This also applies to their Jesus Shoes, made famous by Drake.

Based on the terms of the settlement, it seems as though people who already have the shoes in their possession will be able to keep them, which opens a whole other can of worms for Nike, thus rendering this whole ordeal useless. Regardless, this mess has been dealt with, and MSCHF and Nike will officially be going their separate ways.

      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
