In order to create a healthy eco-system for our NFTs, we always wanted to savor the artistic craft, ingenuity, community, & utility. The love we have for our brand and products. Our goal has always been to bring you the most badass art and creativity we can produce at an exceptionally high quality, but limited in supply.
We’ve always wanted our NFT’s to hold value, for today and tomorrow.
We are trying something different at CULT&RAIN. The first being that we believe in the art, culture, and desire around your NFTs before we let our scarcity and rarity structure determine how you feel about them. We always saw the CUT&RAIN community collecting and trading sneakers according to what they like, not by how much money they can get. Our ultimate goal is that certain sneakers and their rarity become valuable not solely by statistics, but by the culture ingrained around them.
We designed a very specific rarity structure for our Genesis drop. Every exclusive set of 100 NFTs within our Genesis Collection (20 sets total completing our 2001 piece drop) has SIX gemstone rarity scales (CRYSTAL, TOPAZ, SAPPHIRE, EMERALD, RUBY, OPAL) corresponding to shoe number (#001–100) with both physical and digital redeemables attached for EACH pair. Even better, these bonuses are CUMULATIVE as you increase in rarity!
And did you notice I mentioned there are now 2001 sneakers in the drop? Big news — CULT&RAIN and Smilesssvrs have collaborated on ‘THE ONE’ — a one off, unique shoe skin design, which will be revealed on Friday February 4th, 2022.
All this, and you receive an identical luxury sneaker. EVERY CULT&RAIN NFT at mint not only has a pair of handmade Italian luxury sneakers valued at >$1,100 attached; each one also has additional long lasting digital and physical redeemables included. These are not one-off tokens to be burned, they are our CULTR PASS.

If you’re an art fan, you will be excited to know that there are incredible collaborations inside the Genesis Drop with some of the coolest NFT artists drumming up noise right now — Javier Arres, Sean Williams, Sophie Sturdevant as well as one of the best & connected communities — THE HEART PROJECT.
There’s so much to it ….
Oh yeah, the cost. While some advised an exorbitant mint price due to the included $1,100 luxury physical sneaker, massive CULTR PASS physical and digital utility, and first to market scarcity concept, we decided to only cover our development (Website development, digital collateral, smart contract development, digital artists, team expenses) and production costs (Shoe molds, materials, labor, bespoke hex packaging, hours of R&D & reaching factory minimum orders) as well as enough to seed our next drop beginning of Q2.
What does this equal: 0.50 Ethereum
We aren’t looking to make a quick buck or price gouge off hype…we are building a brand born from and serving crypto enthusiasts. This first drop is our promise and commitment to you to that we will always operate with integrity, fairness, and put the community’s needs above all else.
And how are we feeling?
Honestly, pretty overwhelmed but we’re so grateful and humbled by the reaction to this project and never imagined the opportunities it would open up, let alone the pathways to connect with our Community. We’ve never worked as hard as we have this past year.
We love the project, we love our community, and we love you. Thank you so much for hopping onboard. I hope you’re having a blast.
