Pimptronot Releases Blue Heroes Gallery NFT and Basketball Sneakers for Blue Lives Matter, NYC
Be a Hero. Be a Champion -- just like the brave men and women who daily put themselves on the line to protect our lives and our freedom.
Pimptronot has minted 10,000 tokens of The Blue Heroes Gallery, this stunning piece of contemporary art depicting fallen Blue Champions in original NFT art. A portion of the proceeds are being donated to Blue Lives Matter, NYC., to provide financial comfort and support to the families of these fallen Blue Superstars. Blue Lives Matter NYC is a 501(c)3 organization. Your purchase may be tax deductible.
Even in the last few days in New York, Police officers have been shot in the line of duty. This is a small way to show support to the men, women, and families that have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms and our way of life.
The shoe design is an old-school basketball shoe look inspired by some of America's champion basketball players. About the shoes, Pimptronot said, "I could have created any kind of product for Blue Lives Matter, but I did a basketball shoe specifically because they're worn by champions. Basketball can also be a bridge between the community and law enforcement and we can only hope that this plays a part in healing the divide. I believe, despite the politics, racism, and bigotry, that unfortunately runs deep in parts of America, a few police officers have besmirched the force, but in the main, they are mostly good people -- our friends, and neighbors -- with a hard job to do and they deserve respect and love -- they are champions."
Each pair of shoes retail at $214USD and all profits are donated directly to Blue Lives Matter with a 100 percent money back guarantee if you pick out the wrong size. All shoes are made in Italy by a master Italian craftsman using pristine leather and the same manufacturer as Prada and Gucci. Each pair is unique, combining handcrafted traditions, quality, and style.
"Any bridge local police forces can build with their communities are going to produce a net good for our society, and we truly appreciate all the support we get to take care of our fallen officers and their families" noted Joseph Imperatrice, Founder of Blue Lives Matter NYC.
