Sneakmart, a French startup that aims to improve users’ Metaverse experience by tokenizing real-world sneakers, has announced an important collaboration with StockX, a leading marketplace for shoe resale.
The partnership allows Snekmart to offer its customers access to sneaker NFTs through its Metakicks platform. The blockchain-based company will see sneaker diehards and fans customizing their collections as they delve into the world of digitization and Web3.
StockX is the official Snekmart partner for physical sneakers and takes delivery for all winners from the first Metakicks drop.
Unique sneaker NFTs with over $200,000 in prizes
The collection will include 15 unique 3D animated designs, with Metakicks boxes offering four rarity levels: Rare, Super Rare, Epic and Legendary.
For its upcoming Metakicks drop, Snekmart has provided prizes worth over $ 200,000 and is supported by football stars such as Didier Drogba, Kinsley Coman and Marco Verratti.
Currently, products like the Nike Air Jordan 1 High have helped bring the limited edition sneaker-related NFTs to a $6 billion market. A booming secondary sales market and a massive shift towards the use of Web3 mean that the fashion industry is just getting started, the platform wrote.
