A shoe company says you can walk on water in their sneakers, and they aren't technically wrong.

They call these shoes - "Jesus Shoes". And for a cool $1,400, you can get the experience of following in Christ’s footsteps.

These shoes have water from the Jordan River injected into the soles.

The Brooklyn-based design company bought less than 24 pairs of Nike Air Max 97's for the "collab culture" venture.

In addition to the holy water blessed by a priest, the white kicks feature a miniature crucifix, frankincense scented insoles, and single drop of blood on the tongue to symbolize Jesus.

The bottoms of the shoes are also dyed a reddish tint to mimic the shoes worn by Popes long ago.

The shoes released Tuesday -- and sold out almost immediately. On the company's website -- "mschf" {mischief} says more will be available Oct. 22, and subsequent 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month.
