$3,000 'Jesus shoes' sell out in minutes

A bizarre new type of footwear inspired by the Biblical story of Jesus walking on water recently went on sale.
The insanely expensive shoes, which are essentially a reworking of the Nike Air Max 97s, were launched in a limited capacity by Brooklyn-based company MSCHF last week.

Adorned with various items of religious iconography, the shoes feature laces made from 100 percent frankincense wool, a crucifix attached to the front and references to a Biblical passage on the side.

Their most distinguishing feature however are soles injected with blue-colored Holy water to simulate the concept of Jesus walking on water.
"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," said MSCHF's Daniel Greenberg.

"We were wondering, what would a collab with Jesus Christ look like?"

If you have $3,000 to spare and are looking to pick up a pair however you may be out of luck because the shoes sold out within a matter of minutes.

On the plus side, there are hints to suggest that a second batch is not outside the realms of possibility.

Comeon you dont have anything in your life that you would splurge on like that if you could? Mine would be fly fishing gear, particularly vintage owned by folks like Kreh or Gierach.

I do, i would splurge on rebuilding my defunct bathroom, and that is what I am saving up for.  I agree with @Torviking  How stupid and wasteful those shoes and many other idiotic "collectibles" are.

These adidas have been out for a long time now and even have Jesus embroidered onto the tongue. Not quite as blasphemous as the Nike's but they're in similar vein. Plus - everyone knows Jesus was a huge Adi fan over Nike...

But these are the ACTUAL ones that Jesus rolled with back in the day, straight from the tomb. These are the serious collectors' 'Holy Grail' of shoes.

We know the Romans practiced cross fit, although it wasn't quite like todays version.
