PUMA Announces Metaverse Debut

Share This Post

Sports apparel company PUMA has become the latest brand to make its entrance into the metaverse. As per its latest press release, the company has released Black Station, its metaverse website. 

Along with this new website, PUMA has also released NFTs that offer redeemable physical sneakers. This ties into its ‘FUTROGRADE’ show for New York Fashion Week.

From all indications,  Black Station is meant to act as a ‘blank canvas’ of sorts for the brand and will change as its web3 projects come to life. When users log onto the site, they will be greeted by three portals, two of which reveal the Nitro NFRNO and Nitro Fastroid sneakers that are part of PUMA’s NFT Nitropass mint. 

Those who got their hands on the Nitropass can access two NFTs. One of these gives them the physical sneaker and the other is tied to a custom experience. These two portals opened on September 7, 2022, and the collection of the rewards will take place after New York Fashion Week.

The third portal leads users into the digital NYFW metaverse fashion show. This is an immersive experience where users can interact with the pieces from the latest collection. 

This new project, which was created in collaboration with creative company FTR, is PUMA’s way of innovating and connecting with fans.

Given the boundaries we are pushing from a product design and digital standpoint, we found it fitting to bring Black Station back as a new portal for digital exploration across fashion, sport performance, our heritage classics, and innovation,” said Adam Petrick, PUMA’s Chief Brand Officer.
