The metaverse offers endless possibilities. There are currently many applications being built in the virtual world, including social experiences, e-commerce, education, gaming, and many more. These applications incorporate non-fungible tokens (NFTs), decentralized finance (DeFi), and other metaverse components to drive mainstream interest.
The NFT sector is an integral part of the metaverse, and it is revolutionizing industries ranging from sports and gaming to art and music. Lately, NFT projects have been targeting the fashion industry as more mainstream users become interested in the concept of digital ownership.
With this in mind, Another1 has partnered with a leading Italian designer to launch the world’s first three-in-one NFT sneakers dubbed NTR1-Meta Sneakers for fashion lovers and NFT enthusiasts.
What are NTR1-Meta Sneakers?
NTR1-Meta is a one-of-a-kind phygital (physical and digital) Italian handmade NFT sneakers collection. This is the first of its kind as the sneakers can be worn by holders in the real world and in the metaverse. It can also be traded as NFTs on popular NFT marketplaces.
The NFT collection has a total supply of 5000 limited edition NTR1-META sneakers that will allow holders to redeem identical physical pairs of their NFTs whenever they want.
The sneakers are designed to not only upgrade holders’ looks but also allow them to experience using digital-to-physical luxury products. According to the NFT creators, the NTR1-Meta sneaker’s design was inspired by the chameleon and its unique ability to change color and adapt to even the most difficult situation.
Who is Behind the NTR1-Meta Sneakers?
The NTR1-Meta Sneaker NFT collection was developed by Another1, a Cosmos-based platform that allows users to build, trade, and showcase physically-backed NFTs. The platform offers a new way for NFT collectors to purchase trending fashion items in the form of digital assets.
Another1 offers users a marketplace to pitch, crowdfund, manufacture, and distribute their digital hype fashion products, which can subsequently be redeemed for physical items in real life.
To create the NTR1-Meta sneakers, Another1 partnered with several industry leaders in both the fashion and digital asset industries. The sneakers were crafted by the Italian fashion designer Lucio Vanotti in the fashion capital of Europe, Milan.
The limited-edition NTR1-Meta sneakers feature classic Italian designs with 34 different color variations and styles. The sneakers were designed with high-quality leather and other materials under Vanotti’s supervision.
Another1 also partnered with Swappable, an NFT-focused user interface powered by TrustSwap. NTR1-Meta sneakers holders can trade their NFTs on the platform.
The NTR1-Meta sneakers collection was crowdfunded by the Another1 community via its Initial Shoe offering (ISO) module.
NTR1-Meta NFT Minting Goes Live
NFT collectors can now mint the handmade NTR1-Meta sneakers on the NTR1-Meta official website. The NFTs live on the Polygon blockchain, and each of the sneakers will be randomly generated in a mystery sneaker box at the time of mint.
The digital version of the sneakers can be worn on the popular metaverse platform, Decentraland. Users holding NTR1-Meta NFTs have the right to request a physical pair of their sneakers. However, before they can receive the physical version, holders must burn their NTR1-Meta NFTs.
The NTR1-Meta NFTs feature about 34 designs from different web3 projects currently available in the industry, including custom Decentraland sneakers.
