Lil Nas X gets off in Air Jordans during Rodeo Drive shopping trip … amid legal battle with Nike over its controversial ‘Satan Shoes’

Lil Nas X caused immediate controversy after designing a ‘satanic’ sneaker to mark the release of the Montero (Call Me By Your Name) music video, even leading Nike to take legal action for the use of their Air Max 97 shoes to make the unauthorized $ 1,018 kicks.

But it didn’t look like Nas was wearing a sharp gray pair of coveted Air Jordans 5 on a shopping trip on Beverly Hills ‘Rodeo Drive on a Saturday shopping trip on Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive.

The 21-year-old Old Town Road hitmaker opted for his wild style by going for monochrome duds while visiting the Dior store for some retail therapy.

The star – real name Montero Lamar Hill – wore a star-studded sweatshirt, black cargo pants, and a Prada bag that crossed over his body. He topped it off with a Broken Promises bucket hat and a black face mask.

After picking up some stuff from expensive French fashion house Dior, Lil Nas left the store with his sweatshirt around his neck to reveal a plain tank top and buff arms underneath.

The Panini singer’s shoes appeared to be an olive branch for Nike, who hit him and MSCHF employees with a restraining order for their creation of 666 pairs of limited-edition Satanic-themed Air Max 97 shoes, which was not endorsed by the Beaverton , Oregon-based brand.

They sued with copyright infringement lawsuit.

The lawsuit filed in federal court in New York’s Eastern District alleges the shoes were “ done without Nike’s approval or consent, and Nike is in no way affiliated with this project. ”

“We have no relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF,” the company said in a statement. “Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them.”

The shoes – which cost $ 1,018 a pair and are adorned with a pentagram pendant and a reference to Luke 10:18, a Bible verse about Satan’s fall from heaven – caused much outrage online, which Nike noted in the suit.

Nike asked a federal judge to order the destruction of the shoes and to grant the sports salesman all the profits that MSCHF earned from the sale. The sportswear company is also claiming damages.

Lil Nas X was expecting controversy prior to release, narrating Complex: ‘The shoe looks great. Some people will get angry or whatever. I will be and I will make the most of it. ‘

While he didn’t seem to be concerned about Nike drama, the singer was even less concerned about the public outcry, which went troll-haters online on YouTube last week with a fake apology.

The Georgian dubbed the clip Lil Nas X Apologizes For Satan Shoe and started, ‘I just want to come up and say …’ before the clip from his video transitioned to a lap dance scene.

The short film has also been hit for its satanic themes, in which Lil Nas X is lured out of what appears to be the Garden of Eden and falls into the depths of hell to give the devil himself a lap dance.
