Adidas' senior director said, “You’re not just buying the product. You’re becoming a member of this community.”

Adidas is entering the next generation of the internet, Web 3.0, with the partnerships it formed with Bored Ape Yacht Club, Gmoney, and Punks Comics. Adidas purchased an ape NFT named Indigo Herz, which gave the company access to the Bored Ape Yacht Club. Only 10,000 ape NFTs were produced and are now selling for around $200,000, according to Vogue Business.

Adidas says that these partnerships will help it navigate into the metaverse “in a credible way” and stay relevant as people across the globe shift from partaking only in physical experiences to “living” in the virtual world. It will also help the athletic apparel giant stay on level with its competitors like Nike, which recently acquired the metaverse startup RTFKT.
