This is particularly noteworthy given the challenges faced by the metaverse space in recent times.
“Reebok is deeply entrenched in consumer trends and transformative technology,” said Todd Krinsky, Reebok’s chief executive officer.
With the Futureverse partnership and the imminent launch of Reebok Impact, the brand aims to push the boundaries of innovation, engaging consumers in the digital evolution of products and redefining possibilities in the metaverse.
