By Washington Examiner. A rapper unveiled a pair of new sneakers called “Satan Shoes,” which contain human blood and will be limited to only 666 pairs, a number often associated with the devil.
Rapper Lil Nas X teamed up with company MSCHF, which sells various viral products, to create the shoes. It will also feature “666” on the back of the shoe and pentagrams.
It will contain a drop of human blood in the sole, but it’s unclear whose blood will be used, according to TMZ. “Luke 10:18” is also written on the side, which is the Bible verse concerning Satan’s fall from heaven.

The shoes, which use the body of Nike Air Max ’97 shoes, will start at $1,018 and are slated to hit the market on Monday.
LMAO- I remember when Nike pulled the shoes featuring the Betsy Ross flag for being "too controversial" and "offensive" and now they are marketing "Satan Shoes" with "human blood". We really do live in stupid times… https://t.co/UH23F5bFGS

Nike Denies Collaborating on Satan Shoes with Human Blood
By Natalie O’Neill. Nike on Sunday denied collaborating with rapper Little Nas X on his controversial “Satan Shoes” — which feature a drop of human blood and demonic imagery, according to a report.
“We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF,” Nike told NBC in a statement. “Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them.”
The “Old Town Road” singer raised hell over the weekend when he released a devilish version of Nike’s classic Air Max ’97 sneakers, featuring the symbol “x/666,” red ink and a single drop of human blood.
The $1,018 kicks, made in collaboration with the company MSCHF, also display Bible scripture from Luke 10:18, which references Satan’s banishment from heaven. (Read more about the Satan shoes HERE).
