With the launch of the new ASICS x Solana UI Collection, ASICS is making a significant step forward in its commitment to get the Web3 community moving in the right direction. Customers who make a purchase will be given a loyalty ASICS Badge NFT at no additional cost, and they will also have the opportunity to get an airdrop of one of a limited number of ASICS x STEPN GT-2000TM NFTs. The shoes in question are the custom-made GT-2000TM 11 iteration. The footwear can be pre-ordered for a short five-day period beginning on November 4 and can only be purchased using USDC digital dollar money via Solana Pay on the ui.asics.com website. This offer is only valid from November 4 through November 8.

The ASICS Web3 purpose is to provide world-class experiences that get the worldwide Web3 community moving. With this collection, ASICS aims to deliver on that mission and deliver products that are particularly created for everyday activity. The GT-2000TM 11 performance running shoe is offered in two individualized designs, referred to as “light mode” and “dark mode,” and is designed to accommodate runners of different skill levels. The minimalistic design of the Solana, which was influenced by the user interfaces (UI) on computer and phone screens, was meant to represent a happy medium between time spent in front of a screen and time spent moving around.

Joe Pace, Director of Web3 and Digital Goods at ASICS, made the following statement in response to the organization’s most recent announcement: “ASICS Web3 commerce has taken a significant leap forward with the introduction of the ASICS x Solana UI Collection. We are excited to leverage Solana Pay and work with STEPN to help us scale our mission of motivating the global Web3 community to form healthy habits using our products, and we are happy to do so. We are thrilled to continue providing experiences that are on par with the best in the world when it comes to Web3, as we have done in the past with our Sunrise Red and Genesis STEPN collections.”

According to Josh Fried, Head of Payments Business Development at Solana Labs, “As a first mover in this space, ASICS is leading the industry by showing how customers and brands can come together around tokengated experiences that provide ongoing e-benefits to both sides.” ASICS is showing how customers and brands can come together around tokengated experiences that provide ongoing e-benefits to both sides. Additionally, “by integrating USDC payments on Solana Pay, ASICS is breaking down territorial constraints in order to facilitate transactions around the world and demonstrating just how much more can be done with Web3 commerce.”

The sneakers may be acquired for a total cost of $200 USDC and can be pre-ordered from anywhere in the world beginning right now until November 9 at 6:59 AM UTC.
