Over in the world of practical fashion, sports apparel firm, Adidas, has announced a bold collaboration with iconic Japanese clothing brand, A Bathing Ape (BAPE). Joining forces, these two powerhouses of the fashion realm will launch an NFT ‘Fresh Forum’ pass that will unlock a pair of physical sneakers partnered with a stylish digital twin.
All in all, the mighty partnership will spawn 100 pairs of the Fresh Forum sneakers in celebration of BAPE’s 30th anniversary. As a result, folks far and wide can acquire the initial access pass in an ‘open-to-all’ 72-hour auction commencing at 4pm CET on August 22. Each item will kick off with a 0.3 ETH minimum bid via the Adidas Collect website, with the crypto averse able to participate thanks to a new partnership with Moonpay.
In addition, BAPE and Adidas will reward holders of their previous SOLES ALT[ER] EGO and (B)APETAVERSE NFTs with a 10% boost to their bidding power. Once in possession owners will then have the ability to trade their assets without restrictions.
