“They have been very thoughtful and deliberate on their entrance into the space. I think they will help empower communities and creators by building together.”
Adidas Originals unveiled their debut into the metaverse on December 2 with partnerships with Bored Ape Yacht Club, GMoney, and PUNKS Comic, asserting that the metaverse will be a space “where anyone can express their most original ideas and be their most authentic selves.”

The ape was depicted in an Adidas tracksuit with the logos of the three partners, and also a sideways Adidas logo when the announcement was made.
GMoney discussed his part in assisting the brand's culturally conscious entry into the industry, noting:
“I have been speaking to them since April, helping to guide them in their strategy, offering feedback on ideas, to make sure that they enter the space in a truly authentic manner. And I think we're seeing that play out now, as Adidas has had the most authentic entry into the space so far.”
