Even Drake‘s soles have got soul.
The “Hotline Bling” rapper, 33, took to his Instagram Stories early Friday morning to show off his splashy new sneakers: Nike Air Max 97 “Jesus Shoes” filled with holy water from the River Jordan and scented with frankincense.
Created by Brooklyn-based company MSCHF, the sneakers — which bring a whole new meaning to the phrase “walking on water” — also feature gold crucifixes suspended from the laces, while the bold red insoles nod to the Pope’s traditional footwear.
Originally priced at $1,425 per pair (perhaps as a nod to the Matthew 14:25 inscription on the toe box), the kicks sold out in minutes and have fetched as much as $4,000 on the resale market.
Not bad for a product intended to troll “collab culture,” as MSCHF’s Daniel Greenberg told The Post in October — but when you’re the 6 God, only the godliest kicks will do.
