Gary Vee Partners With Sean Wotherspoon For VeeFriends x Reebok Sneakers

To produce five limited edition Reebok sneakers featuring VeeFriends’ Aspiring Alpaca character.

Gary Vee has joined forces with Sean Wotherspoon to produce five pairs of limited edition VeeFriends x Reebok sneakers.

Vaynerchuk’s VeeFriends NFT collection will be featuring its Aspiring Alpaca character on Reebok’s “VeeBok” classic nylon prototype sneaker.

Wotherspoon, the artist, and co-founder of Round Two, is highly recognized in both the art and fashion industry given his range of creative work and a famous sneaker collection. He previously designed one of Nike’s most popular Air Max 97 colorways and now seeks to impact the NFT space with his own collection — Wother-SPOONS — which supports the environment with tree planting initiatives.

There are only 40 Aspiring Alpaca NFTs in VeeFriends Series 1, as only 0.39% of the entire collection carry the trait.

The exclusive supply of only five pairs will be raffled off at Wotherspoon’s iconic vintage store, Round Two’s in New York City during NYFW on September 15.

The in-person event will run alongside an online-only raffle taking place during a five-hour window from 10 AM to 3 PM ET, with tickets costing $5 USD each. All raffle proceeds be donated in support of The Bowery Mission, a local non-profit assisting underprivileged community members in NYC.

Since May 2021, VeeFriends has served as a notable example in the mainstream adoption of NFT assets. With the overall NFT market facing a current decline, VeeFriends continues to extend its inspiring impact of ambition and community building in unique ways.

In August, the NFT collection has launched its own physical trading card game, “Compete and Collect,” along with various mini drops and correlated projects such as VeeFriends Series 1, VeeFriends Series 2, and BookGames.

The VeeFriends ecosystem has brought in over $500 million USD in sale volumes along with meaningful IP rights and creative derivatives for the project’s community like VeeCon – an annual super conference to bring together the emerging Web3 group of creatives and leaders.

Partnering with Wotherspoon expands the NFT’s digital collection into the physical realm of fashion and sneakers.

In February, the Wotherspoon shared his enthusiasm and support for NFTs to his 1M+ followers on Instagram, saying, “Hear me out, NFT’s are here to stay.”

In the past, VeeFriends collaborated with the NFT photographer Isaac “Drift” Wright to launch exclusive red-colored “Old Skool VANS” sneakers for VeeFreind’s Gift Goat holders.

Where My Goats Go” also gave NFT owners the opportunity to customize their own sneakers, representing their unique style with Drift’s unique photos taken during a helicopter flight with Gary.
