LOOK: 'Jesus Shoes' sell out despite whopping price tag

A limited-edition sneaker, which is filled with holy water in the soles and actually blessed by a priest, sold out within minutes of its debut. And that is even with a price tag of about $3 thousand!

New York based MSCHF is responsible for releasing the shoe, which is a pair of all-white Nike Air Max 97s, though the design is in no way affiliated with Nike, that have been injected with holy water sourced from the Jordan River. The water, which is visible in the see-through sole, has some coloring added to enhance visibility, according to the shoe’s creator.

The sneakers, called “Jesus Shoes,” also feature the Bible verse Matthew 14:25 — the passage describing Jesus walking on water — and a single blood drop to represent the blood of Christ.

Less than two dozen of the Jesus Shoes were made with no plans to create more, according to MSCHF.
