NFT Nike Air Force 1 sneakers, created in collaboration with digital art design studio RTFKT, are to be released in physical form and will even be available for purchase, the studio’s official Twitter announced.

Adding to the exclusivity of the collaboration is the fact that it was developed with input from the internationally renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. In particular, the sneakers are an offshoot of the main NFT collection CloneX launched by the artist and RTFKT in 2021, which has almost instantly become one of the hottest on the market.
In order to become the owner of one of the pairs, you must initially buy NFTs of the desired coloring, of which there are 10 in total, then redeem your tokens in exchange for a real pair when the event occurs, paying a gas fee as well. In doing so, a new token will be minted in exchange for the redeemed NFT, to which a real pair can then be linked. The sneakers themselves are promised to be produced and delivered to owners by the fourth quarter of 2023.
