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

A crucifix dangles off the shoe laces

MSCHF employees pitched different shoe concepts - sneakers with a holy nail and fake blood and a modern upgrade on the classic "Jandal" (Jesus sandal) trend. The shoe's toe box is also stamped with "MT. 14:25", a reference to the verse in the Book of Matthew in which Jesus walks on water.

The Holy footwear is the work of Brooklyn-based designers MSCHF, who are in no way affiliated with the shoe's original designer Nike. Filled with holy water, the sneakers called "Jesus shoes" sold out minutes after their debut.

The $3,000 sneakers are filled with holy water from the River Jordan in Israel and have a crucifix tied to the laces. The white and turquoise-accented sneaker also features 100-percent red wool insoles scented with Frankincense that are supposed to be a reference to the Vatican and, one would assume, Papal slippers.

Speaking to the New York Post, the brand's head of commerce, Daniel Greenberg, explained that the company's staffers were sharing ideas for ridiculous collaboration ideas, before they started wondering, 'What would a collab with Jesus Christ look like?'

Unsurprisingly however, the shoes have stirred up some serious controversy online, with many incorrectly directing abuse over the release at Nike - which did not have any input or involvement in the design of the sneakers. But the price tag didn't seem to matter to at least two dozen people.

"So we wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has gotten". (The shoes are also available on retail site Stock X for around $3,000).

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