Judge issues temporary restraining order against creators of ‘Satan’s sneakers’ by Lil Nas X | Song

The decision is part of a lawsuit filed by the manufacturer, which says it has not authorized the use of the brand and asks that the sale of the models be prohibited.

The art collective MSCHF launched 666 pairs of shoes on Monday (29). According to the creators, the pairs sold out in less than a minute.

The $ 1,018 (R $ 5,800) sneakers, which feature an inverted cross, a pentagram and the words “Luke 10:18”, were made using the modified Nike Air Max 97s.

The manufacturer alleged trademark infringement and filed a lawsuit against the creators.

According to “Hollywood Reporter” magazine, Nike said that “satan sneakers” had damaged the company’s reputation.

MSCHF lawyers set up the defense behind the First Amendment to the American Constitution, which defends freedom of expression. They claim that the version is a work of art, bought by collectors.

The collective affirms that all the pairs produced, except one, have already been sent to buyers. Since there are no plans to do more, the restraining order is unnecessary.
