Generative FREE mint & 1-of-1 auctions celebrating sneaker culture and revolutionizing the art of custom footwear.
The Lab was birthed out of the realization that shoes and NFTs share incredible parallels: both are art, collectibles, and have fostered some of the most vibrant communities out there. As a bridge between the sneaker and NFT communities, we’re here to celebrate sneaker culture and the art of custom sneakers.
This culture has always been rooted in us–the people who embrace shoes as a universal language of expression, individuality, history, innovation, functionality, and art–so we’re paying tribute to it with four fresh silhouettes inspired by some of the dopest real-life sneakers to date.
On top of that, our team includes three extraordinarily talented customizers who have hand-designed 24 insane 1-of-1s. If you hold one, you’ll receive a physical custom sneaker mimicking its design. We strongly believe that unique and custom sneakers in the digital art space are the next big thing, so we’re here to facilitate that movement and connect it to the physical world, exploring an entirely new way to "wear your NFTs" and access some sick 1-of-1 kicks. Supporting both customizers and the community as a whole through our NFTs is the ultimate celebration and invitation into sneaker culture.
We donate $2,000 worth of sneakers to Soles4Souls and Other 1s Foundation!
Our merch design process is unlocked! It will be led by Ty, Cody, and Nate, and voted upon by TASL holders. Once complete, holders will be granted early access to purchase!
Our customizer-driven utility goes live! See above for the crazy perks that holding each silhouette grants.
We donate $10,000 to a charity chosen by the team and holders!
The TASL Community Fund opens, allowing all holders to truly shape the future of Tongue and Sole Lab. Everyone will help decide how funds are used to sustain and grow TASL, between philanthropy, investments, and digital/IRL event planning. We will hold weekly Lab Proposals for holders to present their own ideas to the rest of the community.
Welcome to the Open Lab! All holders will have the opportunity to ideate and curate their own designs, silhouettes, colorways, traits, etc., to potentially be released as airdrops or in a future collection.
In line with Tongue and Sole Lab’s mission, we also plan to crowdsource even more custom sneaker artists, so they too can use our platform to showcase meaningful work in Web3 and maximize their creative freedom.
Raffles and giveaways for rare sneakers and upcoming sneaker drops.
Holder-only town halls, AMAs, and Zooms with the TASL team and special guests (i.e. learning how to customize a sneaker, going behind the scenes on customizers’ work)
