If you ever needed evidence that we stray further from biblical truth every day, this new Nike sneaker should do the trick. A Brooklyn-based brand called MSCHF made a thousand-dollar pair of Nikes that are been called the “Jesus Shoe.” They sold out within minutes on Monday the 8th.
Apparently, these Nike Air Max 97s are decked out with slightly over two ounces of holy water sourced straight from the River Jordan and injected into the soles (so you can literally walk on water like Him), a crucifix, red insoles to call back to Vatican traditions, and a Matthew 14:25 inscription. The shoebox itself also displays an angel and a seal that resembles the official papal seal.
They’re also scented with frankincense, which, according to the Book of Matthew, was one of the gifts the wise men brought to Jesus on the night of his birth. They truly thought of everything here.
The shoes were originally $1,425 but are all sold out now and going for up to eight times the price for those who slept on them when they first went on sale. (There are select sizes available for $3K though.)
In the words of Grandma, Lord have mercy!
