This sneaker collab is money
First, we challenged tradition in the financial industry. Then, we teamed up with fellow trendsetter and iconic shoemaker The Shoe Surgeon to create two pairs of custom Chime sneakers that had people reaching for their Chime cards. But these kicks weren’t for sale. Only sweepstakes winners were lucky enough to lace ‘em up.
The Credit Builder 1 takes its color scheme from the credit card that’s changing the game. Predominantly mint green with Credit Builder-colored checks, this tonal silhouette sits on a translucent ice outsole with $1 bill underlays as well. Rock them with the included light green laces for a full-tonal vibe, or coffee-dyed laces to add some pop. The tongue-pull is marked with Chime branding on the front and pair number on the back. And yep—it’s got a pocket for your Credit Builder card, too.
The Debit Card 1 features a tumbled leather white colorway and uses high-end materials throughout—like a white suede padded collar that meets a blue plonge leather sockliner. Sitting on a translucent green-dyed ice sole with $1 bill underlays, these kicks are complete with a tumbled leather Chime-green check on the lateral side and an iridescent vinyl check on the medial: a nod to the card’s hologram. Each pair comes individually numbered and includes optional green, white, and off-white laces. Oh yeah, did we mention there’s a debit card pocket? Because there is.
