MSCHF / Lil Nas X Controversial ‘Satan Shoes’ BLOCKED By Judge!
That’s right, the disgraceful, disrespectful, and blasphemous ‘Satan Shoes’ has been pulled. Read on since Nike got MSCHF Lil Nas X Satan Shoes BLOCKED…
CelebnMusic247.com previously reported that Lil Nas X’s controversial ‘Satan Shoes’ was slapped with a lawsuit by Nike.
Now, there is more regarding Lil Nas X’s viral “Satan Shoes”
The “Satan Shoes” sales have been BLOCKED.
A federal judge has blocked the Air Max 97 sneakers from selling any further.
Nike took legal action against MSCHF Product Studio, the company that teamed up with Lil Nas X for the product, arguing that it could negatively impact its brand. Nike also requested a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.
MSCHF said in a letter to the judge Wednesday (March 31st), that the shoes are “not typical sneakers, but rather individually-numbered works of art that were sold to collectors for $1,018 each.”
It added that similar to a pair of Jesus shoes, Lil Nas X’s sneakers will be shown as artistic work and could be in museums. It was noted that Nike could later include the Jesus shoes in question in the lawsuit.
What Happened in Court between Nike vs MSCHF:
Nike’s legal team said in court documents that the company has “submitted evidence that even sophisticated sneakerheads were confused.”
The fitness brand also said some vowed to boycott the athletic brand, believing it was associated with the shoe. Nike’s lawyers added:
We have submitted numerous pieces of evidence that some consumers are saying they will never buy Nike shoes ever again.
U.S. District Judge Eric Komitee asked:
How much tarnishment is required?
Nike’s lawyer Kyle Schneider responded:
There’s no bright line but the more famous the mark — and we think Nike’s swoosh is one of most famous mark of all time — the more protection it is afforded.
MSCHF’s lawyer argued:
There’s no statement that Nike is affiliated.
MSCHF also pointed out that all of the shoes have already been shipped, except one pair, adding:
There’s no basis for a recall. They are not doing this for money. It’s about the message.
But Nike challenged the statement and said some celebrities, like Miley Cyrus, have already been connected to the shoe. It also claimed some shoes could have been shipped after its lawsuit was filed.
In the end, the judge ruled that Nike sufficiently pled its case. A hearing for a longer injunction will be held at a later date.
We understand because we WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH NIKE if they are involved with a shoe that promotes SATAN.
The Shoes are an utter disgrace. And yes, the shoes can RUIN Nike’s rep. That proves that MSCHF are Satan worshipers who are trying to send a message to support the devil and sell their souls.
If you are a parent, make sure you keep your kids away from the brand MSCHF.
