‘Jesus Shoes’ filled with holy water sell out within minutes of release

Filled with holy water, the sneakers called "Jesus shoes" sold out minutes after their debut.

The result is a pair of kicks they describe as "Jesus Shoes" and boast a string of additional religious details like the frankincense-scented insoles, a crucifix threaded through the laces, and a red sole, in tribute to the traditional footwear of the Pope.

Nike shoes with actual holy water in the soles are going for as much as $3,000 a pop, and sold out in mere minutes when they dropped Tuesday morning. MSCHF has also inscribed Matthew 14:25 on the toe box and developed the entire design with a general biblical vibe. The shoebox also displays an angel and a seal resembling the official papal seal. The brand asked itself, "What would a collab with Jesus Christ look like?" and came up with this white-and-sky-blue pair.

Referencing a recent viral collaboration between Adidas and Arizona Iced Tea, Greenberg explained: 'We wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten'.

The water comes directly from the River Jordan, and has then been blessed by a priest, so consumers can theoretically walk on water like Jesus did in Matthew 14:25.

Greenberg, who dropped out of college after his freshmen year and is now studying two days a week at New York University while working full-time at MSCHF, tells Yahoo Lifestyle while rushing to class, "We're not a shoe company and we did not believe many would buy these or pay freaking $1,425".

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

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