Many major brands have tapped into NFTs to increase customer engagement, and Nike has been at the forefront of this amazing paradigm shift. Now, in what is a prime example of utilizing non-fungible tokens to create exclusivity and reward customer loyalty, Nike is set to deliver a physical version of the Air Force 1 NFT sneakers.
The NFTs have been developed in collaboration with RTKFT, a digital art studio Nike acquired in 2021. While, renowned digital artist Takashi Murakami takes lead on the project, coming up with unique designs that make up the Air Force 1 NFT collection. Now, the sportswear giant aims to avail the physical versions of these sneaker NFTs. However, only holders of the partnered NFTs will get a chance to purchase the exclusive physical versions.

How to Get Hold of the Physical Nike Air Force 1 Sneaker
That said, there will be a forging event between April 24 and May 8 that will take place on RTFKT’s website. Holders of the sneaker NFTs will place orders for the physical versions, which will be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year.
A statement from the website reads, “Step into the future with RTFKT and Nike’s Air Force 1 collection: featuring limited edition designs by Tashi Murakami. Get the NFT to be able to get the physical sneakers on 4.24.23.”
Therefore, fans that might be interested in the physical versions will have to get their hands on the tokens that make up the Air Force 1 NFT collection.
“The RTFKT x Nike Air Force 1 digital collectibles have already been minted at a price, thus holders will only have to pay gas fees for the transactions during the Forging event. If, however, you do not currently own a digital collectible from the above mentioned OpenSea Pre-Forge collection, then you will need to buy a pair of OpenSea, or another secondary marketplace, to be eligible for the Forging event.”
The sneakers come in ten different colors dubbed Genesis, Murakami Drip, Human, Robot, Demon, Angel, Reptile, Undead, Murakami DNA, and Alien.
