A strategic digital activation project to launch limited edition sneakers and an exclusive collection of NFTs.

By combining physical fashion with digital innovation, the brand marked the launch of a collection of limited-edition sneakers designed in collaboration with “The Sneaker King” – NBA basketball player P.J. Tucker. Based on the American basketball player’s aesthetic Dolce & Gabbana created two new interpretations of the Miami sneaker, inspired by basketball sneakers from the early ’90s.

The collection previewed online and P.J. Tucker signed the first 100 pairs sold which were also accompanied by one of three exclusive NFTs – or Non-Fungible Tokens. These NFTs were not only digital authenticity certificates for the sneakers themselves but, were also unique, digital, collectable artworks with different levels of rarity protected by blockchain technology on Ethereum.

We designed the first part of the project as a teaser to engage users and make them want to know more, starting with the 3D animated logo whose metallic finish makes it look precious and enticing.

The brand announced the project but the three NFT digital artworks were kept a secret until all 100 pairs of signed sneakers were sold. In the meantime, users could interact with the landing page to discover the project. They could create their own composition with windows that contained technical information, calls to action and visual teasers such as 3D renderings and pixelated representations of the artworks.

The NFTs

Once the sneakers were sold the new owners could redeem their NFT and find out which artwork they had acquired: “The Gold Bomb” (edition of 3), “The What the Dunk” (edition of 27) or “The Glowing Core” (edition of 70).

The three NFTs are 3D animations inspired by P.J. Tucker’s love of sneakers and of the explosive power and energy of elite basketball. The artworks perfectly unite the worlds of sport, fashion and art making them true collectors’ items.
