Lil Nas X Doesn't Care If You Don't Like His "Satan Shoes"

Controversy is following Lil Nas X's new video and his new sneaker collaboration containing human blood.

Lil Nas X with the Satan Shoes

UPDATE 3/30/2021: Following negative press and backlash over the "Satan Shoes," Nike is now suing MSCHF, the company which partnered with Lil Nas X on the collaboration.

Nike filed a lawsuit accusing MSCHF of "trademark infringement" after many social media dissenters announced their plans to boycott Nike over the shoes — despite their non-involvement.

Supreme's Sale Makes One Thing Clear: Streetwear Has Left Behind the People Who Built It

Supreme's $2.1 billion sale to VF Corporation, owner of Vans and North Face, is only part of the gentrification of streetwear culture.

Original Supreme 274 Lafayette Store, NYC

Streetwear as we know it now was built in SoHo.

When I moved to New York City in middle school, I was immediately infatuated with SoHo. What was hiding in these unnumbered streets?
