Nike to Drop Physical Air Force 1 NFT Shoes
American athletic wear giant Nike is preparing to release a special edition of the iconic Nike Air Force 1 sneaker on 24th April 2023 via its Web3 subsidiary RTFKT’s ‘Forge The Future’ NFT minting event.
How to Try on a Real-Life NFT Sneaker
The forging event will be available for all RTFKT holders who own a Clone X Forging SZN 1 (PRE-FORGE) NFT. These 3D NFTs featuring a capsule with the shoe model of choice are available on the secondary market like OpenSea and cost between $375 – $500. Besides, the collection features exclusively designed hoodies, sneakers and t-shirts by Takashi Murakami – costing significantly less than Nike’s virtual kicks.
