Nike has won its lawsuit against Brooklyn art collective MSCHF over the controversial ‘satan shoes’ that contain a drop of real human blood in the soles.
MSCHF produced the shoes in collaboration with rapper Lil Nas X.
The company said only 666 pairs were made and all but one have already been shipped.
Nike claimed trademark infringement, asking a federal court in New York to stop MSCHF from selling the shoes and prevent them from using its famous swoosh.
The BBC reports that a federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order on Thursday.
However, the impact of the ruling remains unclear as MSCHF has indicated that it has no plans to produce any more pairs of the shoe.
Lil Nas X has responded to the ruling via a tweet.
“i haven’t been upset until today, i feel like it’s f_ucked up they have so much power they can get shoes cancelled. freedom of expression gone out the window. but that’s gonna change soon,” tweeted the singer.
