The sneakers, made using Nike Air Max 97s, are a collaboration between the “Old Town Road” rapper and New York-based art collective MSCHF. Nike clarified its sneakers are not being used in an official partnership.

“We do not have a relationship with Lil Nas X or MSCHF,” the company told CBS News in a statement Monday. “Nike did not design or release these shoes and we do not endorse them. The sneakers will launch as a limited edition collection of 666 pairs. According to MSCHF, each shoe continues about 2 fluid ounces of red ink and “one drop” of human blood in the sole. The blood came from the MSCHF team.
