Nikes Filled with Holy Water Sell Out Immediately at $3,000-a-Pair
Feeling like Jesus ain't as cheap as it used to be.
A design company called MSCHF in Brooklyn just released a new limited-edition line of Nikes called "Jesus Shoes." And they're filled with holy water.
The shoes are white '97 Air Max Nikes with a crucifix woven into the laces . . . frankincense-scented insoles, and turquoise-tinted holy water from the Jordan River injected into the see-through air bubble above the soles.
The shoes also have "MT 14:25" printed on them. That's a reference to Matthew 14:25, which is the Bible passage about Jesus walking on water.
The people at MSCHF say they wanted to make a statement about how crazy, "collab culture" has gotten. "We were wondering, what would a collab with Jesus Christ look like?" By the way, the shoes aren't endorsed by Nike.
MSCHF put their pairs of "Jesus Shoes" on sale on Tuesday morning at $3,000-a-pair... and they sold out immediately.
