Judge orders arts company to stop selling "Satan Shoes" after Nike lawsuit

A federal judge has sided with sportswear brand Nike, in ordering a Brooklyn arts company to temporarily stop further sales of the "Satan Shoes" it collaborated on with the rapper Lil Nas X.
 
Nike sued MSCHF Product Studio three days ago, claiming that the black-and-red, devil-themed sneakers, which carry the Nike "swoosh" logo, infringed its trademarks.
 
The sneakers are customized versions of the Nike Air Max 97 sneakers and reportedly contain one drop of donated human blood in the midsoles.
 
The shoe also features the bible verse Luke 10:18, a passage referring to Satan's fall from heaven.
 
Only 666 pairs, costing $1,018 each, were made and they all sold out within a minute.
 
The company said there were no plans to make more of the shoe.
