Makers of 'Satan Shoe' Lil Nas X collaboration insist they are 'art' after being sued by Nike

New York art collective MSCHF says it is 'honestly surprised' by Nike's action

The makers of the "Satan Shoe", a collaboration with rapper Lil Nas X, have insisted they are "art" after being sued by Nike and ordered by a court to stop selling the item.

Nike, which has no connection to the project, sued MSCHF Product Studio after it released 666 pairs of black Nike Air Max 97s. The trainers had been customised to feature a bronze pentagram, a Bible verse referring to Satan's fall and a drop of human blood mixed with red ink in the midsole.

A US federal judge has granted Nike's motion for a temporary restraining order, banning the Brooklyn art collective from fulfilling orders for the shoes and from further using Nike's trademarks.

The judge said Nike had demonstrated MSCHF's actions were "likely to confuse, and likely are confusing, consumers about the origin, sponsorship or approval" of the shoes, and that they would "dilute and tarnish" Nike's brand, causing "irreparable harm" without the restraining order.

However, MSCHF has insisted the shoes are art and that their production falls under freedom of expression. "There is no better way to start a conversation about consumer culture than by participating in consumer culture," the studio said.

MSCHF also said it was "honestly surprised" by Nike's action, and that the collective "look forward to working with Nike and the court to resolve this case".

The temporary restraining order will be in place until the outcome of Nike's motion for a preliminary injunction is decided, with MSCHF ordered to appear on Wednesday, April 14, to argue its case.

The shoes sold out almost instantly after being released last Monday, going for $1,018 a pair.

One remaining pair was supposed to form part of a Lil Nas X Twitter giveaway, but the collective said this was now prohibited "indefinitely".

The sale is a follow-up to MSCHF's "Jesus Shoes" – white Nike Air Max 97s with holy water in the sole.

Nike did not sue over that product, a fact pointed out by MSCHF, and the collective said: "Heresy only exists in relation to doctrine: who is Nike to censor one but not the other?"

Lil Nas X's collaboration on the shoes is linked to the release of the music video for his new song Montero (Call Me By Your Name).

The rapper, born Montero Lamar Hill, shot to fame with his megahit song Old Town Road.

Three trading apps to try

Sharad Nair recommends three investment apps for UAE residents:

  • For beginners or people who want to start investing with limited capital, Mr Nair suggests eToro. “The low fees and low minimum balance requirements make the platform more accessible,” he says. “The user interface is straightforward to understand and operate, while its social element may help ease beginners into the idea of investing money by looking to a virtual community.”
  • If you’re an experienced investor, and have $10,000 or more to invest, consider Saxo Bank. “Saxo Bank offers a more comprehensive trading platform with advanced features and insight for more experienced users. It offers a more personalised approach to opening and operating an account on their platform,” he says.
  • Finally, StashAway could work for those who want a hands-off approach to their investing. “It removes one of the biggest challenges for novice traders: picking the securities in their portfolio,” Mr Nair says. “A goal-based approach or view towards investing can help motivate residents who may usually shy away from investment platforms.”

Healthy tips to remember

Here, Dr Mohamed El Abiary, paediatric consultant at Al Zahra Hospital Dubai, shares some advice for parents whose children are fasting during the holy month of Ramadan:

Gradual fasting and golden points - For children under the age of 10, follow a step-by-step approach to fasting and don't push them beyond their limits. Start with a few hours fasting a day and increase it to a half fast and full fast when the child is ready. Every individual's ability varies as per the age and personal readiness. You could introduce a points system that awards the child and offers them encouragement when they make progress with the amount of hours they fast

Why fast? - Explain to your child why they are fasting. By shedding light on the importance of abstaining from food and drink, children may feel more encouraged to give it there all during the observance period. It is also a good opportunity to teach children about controlling urges, doing good for others and instilling healthy food habits

Sleep and suhoor - A child needs adequate sleep every night - at least eight hours. Make sure to set a routine early bedtime so he/she has sufficient time to wake up for suhoor, which is an essential meal at the beginning of the day

Good diet - Nutritious food is crucial to ensuring a healthy Ramadan for children. They must refrain from eating too much junk food as well as canned goods and snacks and drinks high in sugar. Foods that are rich in nutrients, vitamins and proteins, like fruits, fresh meats and vegetables, make for a good balanced diet

You could introduce a points system that awards the child and offers them encouragement when they make progress with the amount of hours they fast

Why fast? - Explain to your child why they are fasting. By shedding light on the importance of abstaining from food and drink, children may feel more encouraged to give it there all during the observance period. It is also a good opportunity to teach children about controlling urges, doing good for others and instilling healthy food habits

Sleep and suhoor - A child needs adequate sleep every night - at least eight hours. Make sure to set a routine early bedtime so he/she has sufficient time to wake up for suhoor, which is an essential meal at the beginning of the day

Good diet - Nutritious food is crucial to ensuring a healthy Ramadan for children. They must refrain from eating too much junk food as well as canned goods and snacks and drinks high in sugar. Foods that are rich in nutrients, vitamins and proteins, like fruits, fresh meats and vegetables, make for a good balanced diet

Healthy tips to remember

Here, Dr Mohamed El Abiary, paediatric consultant at Al Zahra Hospital Dubai, shares some advice for parents whose children are fasting during the holy month of Ramadan:

Gradual fasting and golden points - For children under the age of 10, follow a step-by-step approach to fasting and don't push them beyond their limits. Start with a few hours fasting a day and increase it to a half fast and full fast when the child is ready. Every individual's ability varies as per the age and personal readiness. You could introduce a points system that awards the child and offers them encouragement when they make progress with the amount of hours they fast
