The devil is in the details, but very little information is being shared about a settlement between Nike and MSCHF over the unauthorized sale of 666 pairs of satanic-themed Air Max 97 shoes.

Nike on March 29 sued MSCHF over the devilish kicks, which were part of a limited release in collaboration with Lil Nas X (who wasn't involved in the suit) and sold out in under a minute. U.S. District Court Judge Eric Komitee on April 1 temporarily halted the fulfillment of any orders that hadn't already shipped.

It appears neither Nike nor MSCHF is out for blood - even though there may be an actual drop of someone's in the shoes - as a settlement was announced Tuesday. (News of the deal was first reported by Yahoo!.)

As part of the pact, MSCHF is going to ask customers who bought the Satan Shoes - and a previously-released line of Jesus-themed kicks - to voluntarily return them and get their money back.

"Nike had nothing to do with the Satan Shoes or the Jesus Shoes," said Nike in a statement, which was obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. "If any purchasers were confused, or if they otherwise want to return their shoes, they may do so for a full refund. Purchasers who choose not to return their shoes and later encounter a product issue, defect, or health concern should contact MSCHF, not Nike."

Here's Nike's full statement:

On March 29th, Nike filed a lawsuit against MSCHF over its release of Satan Shoes, which used a Nike Air Max 97 as the base. MSCHF also previously released Jesus Shoes, which used a Nike Air Max 97 as the base. In both cases, MSCHF altered these shoes without Nike's authorization. Nike had nothing to do with the Satan Shoes or the Jesus Shoes.

Today, April 8th, Nike and MSCHF have agreed to settle the lawsuit.

As part of the settlement, Nike has asked MSCHF, and MSCHF has agreed, to initiate a voluntary recall to buy back any Satan Shoes and Jesus Shoes for their original retail prices, in order to remove them from circulation.

If any purchasers were confused, or if they otherwise want to return their shoes, they may do so for a full refund. Purchasers who choose not to return their shoes and later encounter a product issue, defect, or health concern should contact MSCHF, not Nike.

The parties are pleased to put this dispute behind them.
