Sneakers called ‘Jesus Shoes’ by Nike seem to be the latest shoe invention at a worth of an estimate of R44 000. The people who bought these sneakers have the opportunity to walk on water. The shoes have holy water in the soles that came from the Jordan River, which also blessed by a priest.
Not only that, the right sneaker also has a cross on top of the laces, according to Hypebeast report. A verse of Matthew 14:25 was also cited on the side of the sneaker. The sneaker also has red ink on it that represents the blood of Jesus, the red ink is seen on the sneaker’s tongue. Highsnobiety reports that the Nike Air Max 97 sneakers have no link to Nike even though they were branded with nike.
Daniel Greenberg, the head of commerce at MSCHF, told New York Post the brand was captivated by the concept of the culture of collaborating. “We thought of that Arizona Iced Tea and Adidas collab, where they were selling shoes that advertised a beverage company that sells ice tea at bodegas. So we wanted to make a statement about how absurd collab culture has got,” says Daniel Greenberg. He states that the concept came from being a Jew.
He also states that the only thing he knew about Jesus was that he walked on water. The shoes were sold online on Tuesday and were sold out in a matter of minutes after availability. The shoes will be sold every second Tuesday and fourth Tuesday.
