Just call it a fashion statement! Just days after the controversial music video for his new single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” went viral, rapper Lil’ Nas X stirred up the pot over the release of the shoes. Only 666 of the limited edition shoes released Monday were to be produced, and each pair was individually numbered. The price tag was $1,018!
The shoes reportedly contain 66 cubic centimeters of red ink and one drop of human blood in its sole. Other features of the infernal footwear are a pentagram pendant over the laces and “Luke 10:18” written on the side. The Bible verse about Satan’s fall reads, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Lil Nas X, who rose to fame after his debut single “Old Town Road” became a global phenomenon, created the “Satan Shoes” in collaboration with the MSCHF clothing brand.
