Nike’s encrypted fashion brand RTFKT announced that it will launch the first native Web3 smart sneaker Crypto kicksi RL.
It supports automatic lacing, haptic feedback, enhanced lighting, gesture control, walking detection, wireless charging, WMNFC link, app connection, AI/ML algorithm and other functions. RTFKT said the sneakers will enable the Move to Earn (run while earning) mode, but did not disclose specific rules about the mode.
The sports shoes are limited to 19,000 pairs, and there are 4 color options, namely Blackout, Stone, Ice and SpaceMatter. During the minting process, they will be sold as digital collectibles (NFTs) to be redeemed for their physical counterparts (the shoes are not waterproof).
Minters will receive a pair of Crypto kicksi RL sneakers as a digital asset (NFT) and a physical pair of sneakers, with RTFKT’s WM chip linking the digital and physical items.
