The Future of Footwear: RTFKT x Nike's First Sneaker Drop
Everything you need to know about RTFKT and Nike's latest collaboration.
Nike and RTFKT just initiated a token-gated drop for their first digital sneaker collaboration. Sneaker-heads across the globe are going wild…
But what if I told you these weren’t just regular sneakers?
Here's the quick scoop on RTFKT’s & Nike’s first collaborative drop.
Mysterious 'MNLTH' boxes were airdropped to Clone X holders in February of 2022. Unboxing a MNLTH revealed an RTFKT dunk.
'Skin Vials' were revealed alongside dunks. That’s where things get interesting.
Skin Vials allow you to switch-up the appearance of your shoe through custom, limited-edition skins from famous artists and the RTFKT community.
According to RTFKT, eventually, there will be thousands of skins to choose from.
Evolution & The Future.
EVO X powered Skin Vials will allow you to "evolve" your shoe, choose upgrades and customize it even further.
Nike & RTFKT have been calling their collaboration "the future of sneakers” — and it’s not hard to comprehend why.
Judging by volume, social engagement and the rise of digital collectibles, it is possible that we are witnessing the genesis of a true shift in the fashion world.
Nike has been hinting at their interest in tapping into the world of phygital items and digital sneakers for years. So, while this collaboration with RTFKT may seem weird or "risky" to some, it is not surprising in the slightest.
The forging event is live on https://rtfkt.com/ and the sneaker is priced at $222.
A public sale will take place in November. Stay curious. — Lite.
