Nike Wins Lawsuit , Against Lil Nas X's 'Satan Shoes' .
On March 29, New York-based
art collective MSCHF released
666 pairs of the controversial modified
Nike Air Max 97s in collaboration with Lil Nas X.
That same day, Nike filed a lawsuit
claiming trademark infringement.
U.S. district Judge Eric Komitee has
sided with Nike for the time being, .
preventing the $1,018 shoes, which sold out
almost instantly, from being shipped to customers.
Miley Cyrus was even seen wearing
a pair before they went on sale.
MSCHF argues that the shoes are
"individually numbered works of art.".
The judgement will stand until a
more in-depth trial is conducted.
Lil Nas X attempted to find a loophole by
giving away a pair of the shoes but later
tweeted he was barred from doing so.
