Designers MSCHF have released a pair of Nike trainers dubbed "Jesus shoes" because they have been blessed by a priest and filled with holy water. Each shoe of the Nike Air Max 97s contains 60ml of holy water in the air-filled sole. The trainers have a bible verse written on the side and less than 24 pairs were made. Nike were not involved in the creation as MSCHF bought the trainers at retail value before transforming them.
Chances are they made thousands of pounds reselling those trainers online. Rather than getting an underpaid retail job, serving tables to thankless customers, or Deliverooing their weekends away, hundreds of teens and equally skint millennials are instead earning a living doing what they love: copping trainers. And then reselling them, usually on Depop.
