Nike applied for and was granted a restraining order against the sale of Lil Nas X’s Satan Shoes.
On Monday, Nike filed a lawsuit against the makers over trademark infringement as they “were produced without Nike’s approval or authorization, and Nike is in no way connected with this project.”
The Satan Shoes each contain “one drop” of human blood. They used modified Nike Air Max 97s for the collaboration. Only 666 were made and they were on sale for $1,018.

“Nike filed a trademark infringement and dilution complaint against MSCHF today related to the Satan Shoes,” Nike told CBS News. “We don’t have any further details to share on pending legal matters. However, we can tell you we do not have a relationship with Lil Nas X or MSCHF. The Satan Shoes were produced without Nike’s approval or authorization, and Nike is in no way connected with this project.”
A judge appeared to agree with their opinion, issuing a temporary restraining order against the unofficial Nike sneakers.
