For the release of their first footwear project, TEMPLA has teamed up with web3 phygital
expert ANOTHER-1 to create a winter boot designed for both the real and digital worlds.
Developed with deep winter and mixed terrain in mind, the Unworld Winter Boots is a
combination of components designed for inclement conditions. From the ground up, the
deep lugged Vibram® sole maximises grip for extreme applications, while the high rubber
midsole extends the waterproofing up the side walls to keep you warm and dry through
slush, sleet and snow. The thermally insulated upper is wrapped in a hard-wearing ripstop
shell and is complimented by a ribbed cuff to trap heat and a luxurious high-pile fleece
lining to create a cosy interior.
The Unworld Winter Boots is created with Templa’s signature handwriting, merging the
swagger of streetwear codes through exaggerated proportions with refined details and a
boosted silhouette to create a commanding presence.
In partnership with Another-1, the physical boot will serve as a gateway to a unique digital
experience that extends beyond the tangible world. By simply tapping your smartphone
against the AN1 tag (Near Field Communication Chip) embedded into the boot, you will
be guided on the Another-1 platform to enter a unique 6-digit code to pair it with an NFT,
guaranteeing authenticity and access to exclusive digital content.
The acquisition of the physical Boots also grants the owner access to a digital wearable
compatible with Union Avatars and a limited edition Unworld NFT artwork series created
in collaboration with visual artist Jordan Donaldson. The artwork series consists of
eight unique atmospheric landscapes defined by a rarity level. Adopting a gamification
process, an algorithm will randomly assign one of the artwork series to its owner during
the redemption process. Given TEMPLA was founded in the mountains, the Snow World –
Tier No.1 Common series represents our connection with the real-world. From here, the
environments progressively gravitate away from the tangible towards the pure imagination;
culminating in the Glitter World – Tier No.8 Mythic.
