Nike and Drake team up for first collaboration

Popular artist Drake is preparing to release new sneakers in a Nike collaboration.
The debut of sneakers is scheduled for the first quarter of 2021.

The news about the collaboration appeared on Monday in the Instagram account @zsneakerheadz. It has been reported that Nike will release the Air Force 1 in collaboration with the Drake OVO brand.
Nike is also planning to release a clothing line in collaboration with Drake in the spring of 2021.

It is worth noting that the Canadian rapper has been unofficially collaborating with Nike since the early 2010s. In 2013, Drake signed with Jordan Brand, a division of the company. Then came several models of sneakers, such as: Air Jordan 4, Air Jordan 10 and Air Jordan 8.

Earlier it was reported that the Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro Chicago sneaker model has risen in price on resale platforms by more than 50%. This happened after the release of the documentary mini-series The Last Dance, dedicated to the career of basketball player Michael Jordan.

Nike won a lawsuit against the creators of “satanic” sneakers with human blood. But they’re all sold out

Nike Corporation has achieved a ban on the sale of sneakers called Satan Shoes (“Satanic Shoes”), created by an art collective from New York. Their soles contain a drop of real human blood.

However, the entire batch of 666 pairs was sold out on Monday – in less than a minute, according to the authors of “The Satanic Shoes”, the Brooklyn-based artists’ organization MSCHF and rapper Lil Nas X.

The sneaker is based on the Nike Air Max 97 and retailed for $1,018.

In the author’s version, the air bubbles in the sole are filled with ink mixed with a drop of human blood. Members of the art collective voluntarily donated blood.

A bronze pentagram is suspended from the laces of the sneakers, and the inscription “LUKE 10:18” flaunts on the side, a reference to the line from the Gospel of Luke “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning.”

Nike accused the team of illegal use of the trademark. The company filed a lawsuit in the Eastern District of New York, and the judge decided to temporarily ban the MSCHF collective from selling this collection. Nike did not make any claims to Lil Nas X.

Each sole of these sneakers contains 60 cubic centimeters of red ink, mixed with one drop of blood.

Nike demanded that the “satanic” sneakers be removed from sale and that the team be banned from further use of the Nike logo.

“MSCHF and their miscreated ‘Satanic Shoes’ may sow misunderstanding and create misleading associations between MSCHF and Nike products. Moreover, there is already evidence of significant misunderstanding and brand dilution in the marketplace, including calls to boycott Nike over the release of ‘Satanic Shoes’.” based on the belief that this product was released with the consent of Nike,” the company said in the lawsuit.
