    The sneakers are expected to be released later in March, with only 666 numbered pairs available.

    MSCHF, a Brooklyn-based brand that in 2019 released a version of Nike sneakers filled with holy water called “Jesus Shoes,” is now preparing to roll out a more sinister kind of footwear.

    The so-called "Satan Shoes," produced by the company in collaboration with the American rapper Lil Nas X, are already being touted on social media. They seem to be a modification of Nike's Air Max '97 sneakers with a "drop of human blood" incorporated in their design.

    The sneakers’ price – $1,018 – appears to be a reference to a verse from the Gospel of Luke 10:18, that mentions Satan "fall like lightning from heaven."

    ​The new footwear will be released on 29 March and only 666 pairs will go on sale.

    The announcement has polarised netizens, with some questioning the sneakers’ design.
