The shoes as YEN.com.gh understands contain holy water fetched from the popular River Jordan in the sole.

According to reliable reports, the shoes were first blessed by a priest.

Dubbed Nike Air Max 97s trainers, the shoes came with crucifixes placed on top of the laces on the right side.

The unique shoes were officially launched on Tuesday, October 8, and were sold out barely hours after going live for sale.

While the trainers carry the Nike name, Nike does not have any affiliation with the product.

The shoes entail a verse from the Bible on the side of the shoe; Matthew 14:25.

Nike Air Max 97s also come with drops of red ink on the trainer's tongue which symbolise the blood of Christ.

The biblical verse featured in the design references the act of Jesus Christ walking on water.

Countless people expressed their astonishment over the creation with many wondering who are the people who splashed GHC 16, 000 for a pair of shoes.

While the trainers promptly sold out, MSCHF promised its clients that new creations devised by the brand will be released online every fourth Tuesday of the month.
