Nike and MSCHF have agreed to settle the lawsuit over the controversial Satan shoes, which were promoted by Lil Nas X.

Nike released a statement detailing parts of the settlement. “Today, April 8th, Nike and MSCHF have agreed to settle the lawsuit,” the statement read. “As part of the settlement, Nike has asked MSCHF, and MSCHF has agreed, to initiate a voluntary recall to buy back any Satan Shoes and Jesus Shoes for their original retail prices, in order to remove them from circulation. If any purchasers were confused, or if they otherwise want to return their shoes, they may do so for a full refund.”

“Purchasers who choose not to return their shoes and later encounter a product issue, defect, or health concern should contact MSCHF, not Nike,” the statement continued. “The parties are pleased to put this dispute behind them.”

MSCHF released a separate statement saying that the “settlement was the best way to allow it to put this lawsuit behind it so that it could dedicate its time to new artistic and expressive projects.”

As REVOLT previously reported, the limited-edition Nike Air Max 97s completely sold out in less than a minute on March 29. The sneakers were priced at $1,018 each and featured feature a pentagram pendant, a reference to Luke 10:18 — a Bible verse about the devil’s fall from heaven — and a drop of human blood in the soles.

The shoes faced major backlash from people on social media, prompting Nike to file a federal lawsuit against MSCHF to cease the production and sale of the Satan shoes. The retail company adamantly denied any involvement with the Air Max and asked a federal judge to award them any profits earned by MSCHF from the sales of the sneakers and order the destruction of the kicks.
