Brooklyn-based brand MSCHF has just released a customized Nike Air Max 97 dubbed the “Jesus Shoes”. The unique pair has been injected with 60 cubic centimeters of Holy Water extracted from the Jordan River. The shoe takes its inspiration from the time Jesus could walk on water in Matthew 14:25.

Of course, these sneakers were produced in very limited quantities. In fact, only twenty pairs were made and sold individually at a price of $1425 dollars. Even though they were quite expensive, they sold out in minutes.
JC sneakers are already out of stock. Nevertheless, they should come back in the future since the brand plans to sell them again. So, either just be patient and stay tuned for more release info or go ahead and cop them at resale.
If you don’t want to wait, be prepared to lighten your wallet. In fact, the Nike Jesus Shoes resells on StockX’s at a starting price of $2,499 USD.
