Let’s be honest — There’s a reason why the streetwear industry is so big. And, truth be told, looking good and feeling comfortable in the clothes you wear is pretty incredible.
One of the most, if not the most important element of streetwear is the sneaker. A great sneaker makes all the difference in the world between looking good and standing out in a sea of people.
So what happens when we mix two things we love, namely our favorite cryptocurrencies with our beloved sneakers?
Enter Blockchain Kicks
Some shoes are simply recognizable. When we think of sneakers, Jordan Retro One, Vans Ol’ Skool… and of course, the classic and incomparable Converse come to mind.
Take for example something as distinguishable as those white Converse sneakers in your closet. How can we make them more unique?
Presto! Custom sneakers with your favorite cryptocurrency artwork.
Blockchain Kicks are not just some ordinary type of shoes. These blockchain-inspired sneakers are screen-printed by hand — granting you the best possible quality on the market.
Imagine stepping out in your best Blockchain Kicks v3, a pair of black hi-tops screen printed with the bitcoin logo. Style and your favorite cryptocurrency combined. And not only that, you get home and can wear your Verge slip-ons for added comfort.
At the time of this writing, Blockchain Kicks has 19 different models. The Bitcoin Kicks and Ethereum Kicks collections are the principal ones. You can also choose to buy other personalized kicks, including custom Converses of 12 other cryptocurrencies — including Dogecoin, in case you want to follow in Elon’s footsteps.
Blockchain Kicks And NTFs: Mixing Trends
Blockchain Kicks is much more than just a shoe brand. They are a unique company with a unique concept. And they are as linchpin. This is where one of its mottos comes from.
“Wear and hodl.”
They are now rolling limited edition NFT kicks. We are talking about Ethereal Kicks, the first addition of Blockchain Kicks in the shape of NFT. We are talking about 100 NTFs that come with a matching pair of hand-printed customs in your size. That way, you can hold them in a digital world while wearing them in the real world.
Each pair will come with an edition number and a personalized QR code on the tongue of the shoe to link it to your on-chain NFT address. That way you can prove you are the owner in every possible way.
The price per NFT Kicks is 0.18 ETH (around $380 at the time of writing). And this will also be the first experiment of NFT kicks. We may have some new NFT Kicks sooner than expected.
Kickin It With Some Final Thoughts
From the outside, we can see how Blockchain Kicks has everything it takes to succeed. A unique concept, a well-defined market, and a quality product. If you are interested in buying some Blockchain Kicks, you can go directly to their website. They ship worldwide and you can pay for your shoes with your preferred cryptocurrencies.
Furthermore, if you are a Coingecko user, you can use your candies to get a 10% discount.
What an exciting prospect of being able to wear, hold, and feel good at the same time with Blockchain Kicks.
Until next time…
