How this happened...
Our CEO, Ryan Mullins, left his job as Director of Future Trends at Adidas on August 31, 2019. About a month later later, on October 1, he moved full-time into building Aglet, a smartphone app he describes as Pokémon Go, but for sneakers.
He recruited a small but dedicated team to bring Aglet to sneakerheads the world over, and on 12th April, 2020, Aglet was launched to the world.
Pokémon Go for sneakers sounds dope - how does it work?
The game turns your physical steps into Aglet, our in-game currency, which you can then use to buy and collect virtual sneakers from brands like Adidas, New Balance, ASICS, Vans and Yeezy (to name a few).
You navigate around your local area (or anywhere you happen to be) using a map which allows you to explore the real physical world around you accessing Treasure Stashes comprising of Normal Aglet, Gold Aglet, Virtual Sneakers and even real ones.
Like real real?
Yes, we give away real sneakers as part of the rewards in this game! So far players in Liverpool, UK, Melbourne, Australia and Chicago, US and more! have won real sneakers.
