Brooklyn-based creative label MSCHF has tapped INRI (Iesus Nazaraeus Rex Iudaeorum) to produce a customized Nike Air Max 97 that evokes the miracle of Jesus walking on water in Matthew 14:25.

The pair have been filled with 60cc of water that was originally sourced from the River Jordan and then blessed, meaning wearers are able to, theoretically, walk on Holy Water. MSCHF continues its biblical references with a nod to The Vatican, who is known for their intricate jewels and traditional red shoes. As a result, the customized pair features red insoles that have been scented with Frankenscence in reference to this, and include a steel crucifix on the shoelaces, Matthew 14:25 inscription on the toe box, and an all-round muted water-themed colorway with red accents.

Rounding off this Godly pair is a shoebox that features a seal that is modified from the official Papal Seal, and an angel on the box that is excerpted from Albrecht Durer’s 1514 engraving Melencolia I.

The pair sold out within a minute on October 8, and can now be bought on the StockX marketplace with prices starting at $2,499 USD — with some pairs demanding a price that’s double, or even nearly eight times more expensive than its original $1,425 USD retail price.
