$3000 'Jesus' Nike Sneakers With Holy Water Sell Out in Days

The shoes are a take on Air Max 97s The shoes are a take on Air Max 97s

The shoes were designed by Brooklyn-based creative arts company MSCHF and they come with holy water in the soles. A one of its kind limited-edition holy water-filled sneakers went out of stock within a few minutes and that too at a colossal price of Dollars 3,000.

MSCHF injected holy water from the River Jordan into the sole of a pair of all-white Nike Air Max 97s, adding some additional colouring to enhance the liquid's visibility. The shoes also have the Bible verse Matthew 14:25 - the passage describing Jesus walking on water - at the side of the show along with a single blood drop to represent the blood of Christ. "Jesus Shoes" are made with 100% frankincense wool (get it?), while the laces are strewn with a crucifix.

The shoebox even displays an angel and a marking that closely resembles the official papal seal.

"So we wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten".

Brad Pitt feels strained relationship with son Maddox is a 'tremendous loss'
Colin Hart and Scott Davis were at the premiere in Leicester Square in London , here are the interviews from the red carpet. She revealed to Entertainment Tonight talking about her son Maddox , "He got tattooed".

In July the two brands teamed up on a limited edition sneaker design, which was then sold for just 99 cents at a NY bodega - a stunt that sparked such a wave of interest, it led to a riot on the street as people desperately tried to get their hands on the shoe.

Aiming high, the team posed a collaboration with "one of the most influential figures in history": Jesus Christ. They have now been listed on the resale website StockX for US$4000. Nike say it has nothing to do with the 'Jesus shoes.' MSCHF bought the sneakers at retail prices and added the "godly" frills itself.

Honestly, I'm not quite sure if the shoes are meant to be targeting religious people, sneaker heads or just anyone who is willing to spend over $1000 on a pair of sneakers, but apparently whatever they're doing is working because they sold out.
