"Jesus Shoes"

Walk on water (kinda) in these "Jesus Shoes," featuring water from the Jordan River blessed by priests. Although you will have to wait. They are sold out for now.

(Meredith/CNN) -- A shoe company claims you can walk on water in their sneakers, and technically, they aren't wrong.

Brooklyn-based creative label MSCHF dropped a pair of $1,425 "Jesus Shoes" on Tuesday, and they sold out within minutes. 

The soles were injected with water from the Jordan River and blessed by a priest. 

In addition to the holy water, the white kicks feature a miniature Crucifix, Frankincense-scented insoles and a single drop of blood on the tongue to symbolize Jesus.

The words “MT 14:25” (an abbreviation for Matthew 14:25) are printed on the side of the sneaker. That Bible verse describes Jesus walking on water. 

MSCHF bought 24 pairs of Nike Air Max 97's and customized them for the "Collab Culture" venture. However, Nike is in no way affiliated with the "Jesus Shoes." 

MSCHF will release another pair on Oct. 22. After that, more pairs will be available every second and fourth Tuesday of each month.
