• Sneakmart sells 6,250 sealed boxes with premium NFT and designer sneakers
• Physical shoes totaling about $ 200,000
• There is an OpenSea auction before the Metakicks boxes are sold
“Metakicks” is the name of the new sneaker NFT collection from Sneakmart. The French start-up was founded in 2016 and has since 2021 offered sneaker fans a platform via the Sneakmart app, where they can exchange information about specific sneaker models and also sell used ones on. Now Sneakmart is taking the plunge into Metaverset – in style.
Metakicks Boxes: Whether NFT or physical shoes are unknown before purchase
From an even-revealed deadline in June, Sneakmart sells a total of 6,250 Metakicks boxes that are sold sealed – so buyers do not know exactly what’s in their box. You get either one of the 15 sneaker NFTs that are randomly stored in the boxes, the company explains on its website. These NFTs are categorized into four different levels: one NFT is “legendary”, four NFTs are “epic” and five NFTs are “rare” or “super rare”. The most valuable is the legendary NFT. Or you get one of those physical pairs of sneakers that are also hidden at random. Among other things, the following models are hidden:
Jordan 1 high
Nike Dunk Low
Adidas Yeezy 350
There will also be two models of Jordan 1 Dior and one Jordan made in collaboration with Travis Scott. These two models are worth several thousand euros and the physical shoes are said to have a total value of 200,000 US dollars. As the Cointelegraph reports, Sneakmart has recruited StockX, the world’s leading streetwear marketplace with over 30 million cumulative monthly active users, as its official partner for the physical shoes.
The Metakicks NFTs will be dropped on the Ethereum blockchain
According to the company’s website, anyone who wins a pair of physical shoes can choose the size. The shoes are shipped internationally, and that’s how Sneakmart wants to make itself known outside the current community of around 150,000 people. Proceeds from the sale of the Metakicks boxes will later be used to internationalize the app, develop new features, create long-term benefits for Metakicks owners and create new limited collections.
The boxes fall on the Ethereum blockchain and are available on Sneakmart’s website. Thanks to the partnership with MoonPay, you can pay either in crypto or by credit card, although of course you are not obliged to open the cash register directly or at all after the purchase. It is also possible to resell them immediately or simply keep them until you eventually want to open or sell them.
The launch date of the Metakicks promotion remains a secret
Shortly before the Metakicks boxes hit the market, a number of other NFT sneakers will be auctioned off at OpenSea. These shoes are designed by various celebrities such as football professionals or design offices: It is said to be shoes from Savoir Faire Paris – on the website of this Parisian design office, shoes are sold in the four-digit range. However, it is not yet known when this auction and shortly after the launch of the Metakick boxes will take place (as of May 23). Sneakmart has announced that they will soon be announcing deadlines on various social media channels.
By the way: On the Sneakmart Discord server, it is possible to be put on a waiting list for the Metakick boxes. You should be able to buy a maximum of three boxes per. wallet.
