Nike is a happy company this week.
The footwear and apparel giant received huge news when a federal judge sided with them in ordering a Brooklyn company to temporarily stop further sales of “Satan Shoes” it produced in collaboration with the rapper Lil Nas X.
MSCHF must stop producing and releasing the shoes, which were set to be limited to 666 pairs.
“We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF,” the company released in a statement. “Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them.”
CNBC reported that MSCHF defended the shoes, arguing that they were “not typical sneakers, but rather individually-numbered works of art,” that should not be confused with a Nike product.
“MSCHF strongly believes in the freedom of expression,” the collective said in a statement. “We look forward to working with Nike and the court to resolve this case in the most expeditious manner.”
Lil Nas X had recently lashed out on Twitter over the entire situation.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
