STEPN Partners with ASICS, Solana on New Sneakers and NFTs

Solana, STEPN, and ASICS have collaborated on a new pair of physical sneakers and NFTs according to a press release from Solana. 

The sneaker, which will be manufactured by ASICS, is inspired by Solana's colors and user interface and is being launched as part of the "UI Collection." Shoes are available in both black and white and feature a Solana gradient on the heel and tongue. 

Want to purchase a pair? You can only do so with USDC on Solana, using Solana Pay. Solana Pay is a payments rail and infrastructure product that was released by the blockchain's foundation earlier this year

For $200, purchasers will receive the physical sneakers and an ASICS Loyalty Badge NFT. By holding the loyalty badge NFT, users will also be entered into a raffle for a chance to earn one of 1,001 STEPN x ASICS NFTs, mirroring the UI Collection.

The 1,001 NFTs breakdown is as follows:

  • 850 common NFTs
  • 150 uncommon NFTs
  • 1 rare NFT

The UI Collection is only available via pre-order at ui.asics.com until Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 2:59 a.m. ET. While there are only 1,001 STEPN NFTs to be airdropped, there are no supply limitations for the physical sneakers as ASICS will only make as many as ordered. There are no order restrictions and pairs will ship globally. 

More about STEPN

STEPN is a move-to-earn mobile application built on the Solana blockchain. The app, which is available on iOS and Android, is meant to incentivize its users to get up and move, literally. The first major project to provide a functioning move-to-earn product, STEPN implements notable GameFI elements to incentivize users, providing them tokens when they go for a walk or a run. These tokens can then be used to improve the game pieces (shoe NFTs!) in the game, or they can be redeemed or swapped for USDC or other cryptocurrencies.
