SNEAKERNESS, in a collaboration with Fila, is set to redefine the sneaker experience with the exclusive unveiling of the ‘WAYNE’ shoe at the highly anticipated SNEAKERNESS convention in Amsterdam on May 25-26. Rooted in a rich tennis heritage, the FILA ‘WAYNE’ shoe pays homage to the iconic 1991 ‘FERREIRA’ tennis shoe, famously worn by tennis legend Wayne Ferreira and draws inspiration from the cozy ambience of traditional Italian pizzerias.

The ‘WAYNE’ isn’t your average sneaker. Each pair comes with an NFC tag embedded within the tongue of the shoe, powered by ZATAP. This integration ushers in a new era in sneaker authenticity and interactivity, elevating the wearer’s experience.

What does this mean for sneaker enthusiasts? It means stepping into a realm where every tap unlocks a world of possibilities. By simply tapping their smartphone to the NFC tag, owners of the ‘WAYNE’ can instantly authenticate their shoe and delve into an exclusive universe curated by SNEAKERNESS. From behind-the-scenes access to insider stories, to immersive digital experiences and limited-edition content drops, each tap promises a journey beyond the ordinary.

“Through this collaboration with Fila and integration of ZATAP technology, we are pushing the boundaries of what a sneaker can be,” says Sergio Muster, Founder of SNEAKERNESS and co-founder of ZATAP. “The ‘WAYNE’ is more than a shoe; it’s a gateway to a dynamic fusion of fashion, technology, and culture.”
