A Brooklyn New Jersey company called MSCHF, introduced online a customized pair of Nike Air Max 97s dubbed “Jesus Shoes. The shoes have 60ccs of holy water from the Jordan River injected into the soles “so you can literally walk on water,” noted Cosmopolitan, a crucifix in the laces, red insoles harkening to Vatican traditions, and a Matthew 14:25 inscription (“Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.”). They are also scented with frankincense and sport a godly white and light blue colorway. The shoes originally sold for $1,425, but are now fetching anywhere from $2,000 to upwards of $11,000.
