Clarkes enters metaverse with Roblox
Footwear specialist Clarks has taken its first steps into the digital landscape with the launch of an immersive experience through the metaverse platform with Roblox.
Through the platform, users can visit the Clarks Stadium, where they receive a virtual pair of the popular silhouette for an online sports tournament. Participants can take part in games, such as BMX stunts, parkour and breakdancing, with each activation designed with help from the real-life athletes who aided in the development of the shoe style.
Young athletes featured in the game include UK break-dancer B-Girl Terra, UK parkour champion Robbie Griffith and BMX rider Connor Stitt.
Users will also be able to visit a virtual Clarks store, where they can purchase jumbo jet packs to sneakers with fire, all with the goal of helping their avatars stand out.
“We’re super excited to bring our iconic brand offering to the metaverse as Clarks is passionate about empowering kids and teens to be the best that they can be,” said Clarks’ global chief marketing and digital officer, Tara McRae, in a release.
McRae continued: “Roblox is all about understanding and enhancing people’s shared experiences, which is what made this feel like such a natural place for us to have a presence in. The Cicaverse is the perfect way that allows our early learners to explore, create, to learn and to play in a dedicated community space that they can call their own.”
Clarks said there are more virtual experiences set to drop over the next year, including exclusive experiences and product drops for the Roblox universe.
