These ‘Jesus Shoes’ Have Actual Holy Water in the Soles

These ‘Jesus Shoes’ Have Actual Holy Water in the Soles

A Brooklyn-based brand customised a pair of Nike shoes and transformed them into a $3000 product by adding a religious touch.

Jesus walked on water - and with MSCHF's latest sneakers, you can, too.

According to the shoe's extremely over the top website, the sole of each shoe is filled with 60cc of artificially colored water sourced directly from the River Jordan that has been blessed by an ordained minister of unspecified clerical affiliation.

"We were wondering, what would a collab with Jesus Christ look like?"

A pair of "Jesus Shoes" are on sale for $4,000 - and for that price, the lucky owner can literally walk on water. Despite the hefty price tag - they're already sold out.

Yovanovitch has led USA embassies in Kyrgyzstan and Armenia and is now a State Department fellow at Georgetown University. Sondland participated in text messages about Washington's relationship with Ukraine with other top diplomats.

Within one minute of being released on October 8, these iconic shoes had already sold out, but if you're willing to pay nearly double the original retail price, you can still pick up a few pairs on the StockX marketplace.

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

Unsurprisingly however, the shoes have stirred up some serious controversy online, with many incorrectly directing abuse over the release at Nike - which did not have any input or involvement in the design of the sneakers. (The shoes are also available on retail site Stock X for around $3,000).

Greenberg, who dropped out of college after his freshmen year and is now studying two days a week at New York University while working full-time at MSCHF, tells Yahoo Lifestyle while rushing to class, "We're not a shoe company and we did not believe many would buy these or pay freaking $1,425". The company's objective is to drop a new project every second and fourth Tuesday of the month.
