'Jesus Shoes' filled with holy water sold out in minutes

MSCHF produced the shoes with water from the "River Jordan" injected into the soles.

A Brooklyn-based brand customised a pair of Nike shoes and transformed them into a $3000 product by adding a religious touch.

According to Fox News, the religiosity of the footwear is further enhanced by the presence of the Bible verse Matthew 14:25, which describes the moment Jesus walked on water. But the price tag didn't seem to matter to at least two dozen people.

About two dozen pairs of "Jesus Shoes", worth $1425 (NZ$2250) a pop, went on sale on Tuesday, and nearly immediately sold out.

The shoes also are adorned with a crucifix, have a red insole and are scented with frankincense, drawing inspiration from the Vatican.

"So we wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten".

"We thought of that Arizona Iced Tea and Adidas collab, where they were selling shoes that [advertised] a beverage company that sells iced tea at bodegas", head of commerce Daniel Greenberg explained to the New York Post.

"As a Jew myself, the only thing I knew was that he walked on water, ' Greenberg added, revealing how the concept for the sneaker was first born, while explaining that he was actually responsible for sourcing the holy water from a 'friend in Israel". The kicks are now reselling on StockX.com for $3,000, more than double the retail value.

A pair of shoes which have been dubbed a "collaboration" with Jesus Christ have sold out within minutes of dropping online.

MSCHF Internet Studios is a creative company that drops something cool every second Tuesday.
