Lil Nas X broke the internet on Friday after his video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” dropped, using what some see as religious imagery to describe a queer angel’s fall from heaven.
The star made waves again just days later after MSCHF announced a collaboration with the rapper for his “Satan Shoes,” which each contain a drop of human blood.
Culture and streetwear publication SAINT tweeted pictures and details about the shoes on March 26, saying each of the individually numbered 666 pairs of modified Nike Air Max ’97s sold will “contain 60cc ink and 1 drop of human blood.”
Each pair will sell for $1,018 as a nod to the Bible verse printed on the side of the shoes, Luke 10:18: “So He told them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.'”
Many fans were shocked by the controversial decision to include human blood in the shoe, some saying they will boycott Lil Nas X over the decision. Most comments online simply expressed confusion over who or what’s blood will be in the shoe.
