Lil Nas X has upped his game of social media controversy as he released his limited edition of evil 666 pairs of custom Nike shoes. Nas X's latest blood-infused Nike has captured the attention of millions after the March 26 release of his latest music video "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)".
The video showcases gay sex with various iterations of Satan. While the openly gay music superstar's "Montero" video, indulging in sex with the devil fantasy, spurred an initial homophobic backlash, the Satan shoes drew a veritable tsunami on social media.
It seems fans of the Gay singer likes the Satanic 666 Nike edition as they complain about its price and not why the shoes were infused with blood. Lil Nas X Satan Sneakers were sold out shortly after going on sale Monday, at a price of $1,018 per pair.
Taking to Twitter, one of Lil Nas X followers wrote: "The only thing satanic about Lil Nas x's satan shoes is that damn price SHEESSHH" while another added, "This man is going places, but not heaven," which was retweeted by Lil Nas X himself.

Meanwhile, Nike revealed that it has nothing to do with the latest Satanic shoe edition of Lil Nas X. "We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF," a spokesperson for Nike told the media further adding that the shoemaking giant did not design or release these shoes and that they do not endorse the blood-infused sneakers.

While some said that his latest Satan seducing video "Call Me By Your Name" is one of the best new songs they've ever heard in 2021, others said that it is corrupting the minds of children.
