Nike’s Web3-based RTFKT Studios is now tackling the real world with its new Cryptokicks iRL sneaker.

Paying homage to the Tinker Hatfield-designed Air Mag, the Cryptokicks iRL is RTFKT’s first smart sneaker. With a futuristic basketball-shoe design, the shoes feature auto-lacing technology, gesture control, walk detection, lighting segments, app connectivity, wireless charging and more. Coming in four colorways, the Ice, Space Matter, Stone and Blackout editions voyage from silver shades to cosmic hues of black complete with several colors.

Still centering its Web3 proficiency, RTFKT is set to reveal functionality features through the RTFKT iRL app. Limited the 19,000 units, the brand is set to sell the sneakers through NFTs that will provide access to the physical versions. Those who have the Lace Engine NFT will be able to purchase the sneakers from December 12-16 online. Another way to purchase is through an online drawing from December 7-9, with selected winners able to purchase the sneakers shortly after.
