Nike 'Jesus Shoes' filled with holy water sell for $3K

In addition to the holy water blessed by a priest, the white kicks feature a miniature crucifix, frankincense scented insoles, and single drop of blood on the tongue to symbolize Jesus.

The brand recently released a customized Nike Air Max 97 shoe that has holy water built into the soles, according to Cosmopolitan.

Speaking to the New York Post, the brand's head of commerce, Daniel Greenberg, explained that the company's staffers were sharing ideas for ridiculous collaboration ideas, before they started wondering, 'What would a collab with Jesus Christ look like?' "You could say Jesus is the most influential person of all time".

A shoe company says you can walk on water in their sneakers, and they aren't technically wrong.

The premium price may not faze true sneaker fans - Bergdorf Goodman sells Jimmy Choo "Diamond Crystal-Embellished Metallic Sneakers" for $3,995, and Dior is selling high-top sneakers for $1,100. It's a play on Matthew 14:25, which describes Jesus walking on water.

The controversial rule would make it more hard for immigrants to get green cards if it looks as though they might need public assistance.

Brooklyn-based label MSCHF have taken Jesus shoes to a whole new level with their latest holy shoes.

"So we wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten". The shoe's bottoms are a reddish hue, alluding to the shoes popes used to wear and bear "MT. 14:25" on the front, which refers to Matthew 14:25 from the Bible.

The Jesus Shoes were sold for $1,425 and are now being re-sold for $4,000. Filled with holy water, the sneakers called "Jesus shoes" sold out minutes after their debut.

According to company's website, MSCHF's allows consumers to get their hands on new products "24 hours before the masses" with drops every second and fourth Tuesday of the month.
