– “…Religious elements include a crucifix that’s been added to the laces, a Bible verse featured along the side of the sneaker, Frankincense (one of the three gifts presented to baby Jesus) scent on the soles, and blessings by a priest, to seal it all together”

Walk on water: $3K Nike ‘Jesus Shoes’ with holy water in soles sell out within minutes
Nike’s newly-released ‘Jesus Shoes’ – filled with actual holy water in the soles – sold out in mere minutes after they hit the shelves on Tuesday morning.
The $3,000 sneakers are filled with holy water from the River Jordan in Israel and have a crucifix tied to the laces.
Each pair was reportedly blessed by a priest and has a red insole in reference to the red Papal shoes that were traditionally worn by Vatican leaders.
The limited edition shoes were made by Brooklyn-based company MSCHF which redesigned Nike’s Air Max 97 model, turning it into “Jesus Shoes,” and offering buyers to literally walk on water.
“We wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten,” MSCHF head of commerce Daniel Greenberg said, adding that they chose “one of the most influential figures in history” – Jesus Christ – for Nike’s new sneakers line.
“We were wondering, what would a collab with Jesus Christ look like? As a Jew myself, the only thing I knew was that he walked on water,” Greenberg added.
….What would Jesus Wear?
Summer’s here, so don’t you think now’s a great time to get some deck shoes with Jesus and Mary printed on them? Me neither.
