Nike has dropped a lawsuit against ‘Satan Shoes,’ a customized version of Air Max95 by American design studio MSCHF. According to Reuters on the 9th, Nike reached a mutual agreement in a federal trademark infringement lawsuit filed against MSCHF and dropped the lawsuit.
In a statement to The Verge, MSCHF said it was pleased. MSCHF said the snickers, which were out of stock in less than a minute, tried to mention the irrationality and intolerance of some brands’ collaborative culture. “Lil Nas X’s song ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ was strongly delivered and dramatically amplified by Nike’s lawsuit. MSCHF added, “Now that the artistic purpose has been achieved, it is best to spend time on new projects.”
“MSCHF changed the shoes without Nike’s permission. “We agreed to voluntarily recall MSCHF to buy ‘Satan Shoes’ and ‘Jesus Shoes’ back at existing retail prices,” he said. “If the buyer is confused or wants to return the shoes, he can get a full refund.” You should contact MSCHF, not Nike, about problems that occur after you do not return them. However, it is not clear whether the buyer will actually return the shoes, and the value of the sneakers has also increased due to the continuous issue. However, after Nike’s complaint, most of the ‘Satan Shoes’ has been suspended on the re-sell platform.
Meanwhile, the USPS warned Nike’s Air Force 1 Experimental Snickers not to “Unauthorized use of our intellectual property rights.”
