Lil Nas X's "Satan-themed shoes" have officially sold out within a minute of their highly anticipated launch.

The 21-year-old "Old Town Road" hitmaker recently grabbed headlines after announcing a collaboration with retail brand MSCHF on a customized pair of "Satan Shoes."

The controversial shoes are adorned with a Pentagram pendant, a message from Luke 10:18 of The Bible, and a drop of human blood on their soles.

Modeled along the lines of the popular Nike Air Max ' 97s, the limited edition shoes were priced at $1,018 and were officially set to release on March 29th at 11 AM EST.

According to Lil Nas X's recent tweets, all 666 pairs have reportedly sold out minutes after officially going live on sale.

He also couldn't resist throwing in a dig at his ever expansive body of critics who have been incensed ever since he announced the Satan Shoes.

Lil Nas X has been embroiled in the midst of a major social media storm ever since he released the music video of his fiery new single called "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)."

The provocative lyrics, coupled with suggestive imagery, have led to a barrage of responses across social media. The Rapper has been dominating the Twitter trending charts since.

From infusing the song with a steady dose of symbolism to invoking references of Paradise, Hell, and Satan, Lil Nas X's Montero has left the internet sorely divided. While some have hailed it as an unabashedly queer anthem of triumph, others have labeled it blasphemous.

The polarizing reception seems to have had no effect upon Lil Nas X, who has been trolling his detractors.
