The Latest Nike x RTFKT Collaboration

You may have noticed Nike’s strong push into the NFT space following its acquisition of cryptocurrency startup RTFKT.

These unique sneakers are priced at $222 each and feature a futuristic design, including a “Vial Clip Tongue” and “Modular Heel Shield” that can be detached for customization.

Regardless of not requiring an NFT for purchase, the sneakers themselves are tied to NFTs through an embedded near-field communication (NFC) chip.
