Nike Air Max 97 “#Jesus Shoes” filled with holy water are selling for $4,000 - CBS News
A pair of “Jesus Shoes” are on sale for $4,000 — and for that price, the lucky owner can literally walk on water. The shoes were designed by Brooklyn-based creative arts company MSCHF and they come with holy water in the soles.
MSCHF bought a normal pair of Nike Air Max 97 sneakers at market value, the company’s head of commerce, Daniel Greenberg, confirmed to CBS News. A plain pair of men’s Air Max 97s go for about $160, but MSCHF completely revamped the shoe and added a golden Jesus on a crucifix as a shoelace charm.
MSCHF also sourced holy water from the River Jordan, which was blessed by a priest in Brooklyn and added it to the soles of the sneaker.
