Tomorrow marks the two year anniversary of NTWRK, the mobile-first video commerce platform that has become a go-to source for finding rare and hyped products, sold through its virtual livestream shopping experiences. Since its inception, CEO Aaron Levant has been bringing his vision to life with the singular direct to consumer model, which Fast Company has called “the QVC for Gen Z.” NTWRK is known for its daily exclusive drops, live videos, engaging hosts, virtual festivals and artist performances, creating a unique platform that places artists and fans front and center. In doing so, NTWRK has accomplished quite a bit in the last two years: The platform raised $1.3M with artist Takashi Murakami for Black Lives Matter, launched two live virtual festivals and invested in Esports team FaZe Clan.
Now, NTWRK is celebrating with an inaugural shopping event that will bring together brands and artists for a massive shoppable livestream featuring exclusive products, celebrity guests and surprise giveaways. With more than 20 drops, the event will touch on some of NTWRK’s greatest 2020 releases in addition to giving away exclusive pieces and a first look at unreleased items across art, fashion, sneakers and collectibles. Here are the best drops to look forward to from NTWRK’s celebratory shopping event.

Japanese brand atmos reimagined a series of adidas sneakers, which will be available during NTWRK’s exclusive event. For the adidas Superstar “G-SNAKE,” glow-in-the-dark material is used for the upper as well as the sole and shell-toe, giving the silhouette a high-vis appearance in the absence of light. The two-tone white and black coloring matches the classic vibe of the Superstar, giving the shoe a duality that celebrates the Superstar’s most memorable year in a while. Then taking color inspiration from the recently released Deerupt Runner and Continental, the “Triple Red” concept is translated onto the adidas NMD. This adidas NMD_R1 atmos shows off bold black branding, which makes for an impactful accent against the vivid red color. Finally, the adidas Superstar “R-SNAKE,” which flips the “G-SNAKE”, shows off a reflective material on the entire upper with a snake motif that appears to lurk in the night. A different shade is revealed when light hits the black material.
Price Range: $40-1,000 USD
