How to produce a mint in STEPN
Step 1: Choosing your first sneaker
To start the minting process, you need to go into the STEPN app and select the first parent sneaker model in your inventory.
Next, you need to click on the “Mint” button on the bottom menu.
Step 2: Choose a second pair of sneakers
The next step is to choose a second sneaker. To complete this, click on the second trainer icon and select the second parent model.
Step 3: Confirm mint
We make sure we have enough tokens and press the “Mint” button. Immediately we see the result in the form of a ShoeBox.
You can either open the box at once, put it into your inventory and sell it on the Marketplace, or open it later.

Each sneaker can be used for a mint, a maximum of 7 times (Shoe Mint indicator). The first two mints cost the same, then the cost increases. Moreover, the cost of a mint depends on the rarity of each parent model.

The cost of cross-breeding Common and Uncommon sneakers
Probability of double minting
With a small chance of getting not one but 2 shoeboxes at once when minting. The chance of getting a bonus Shoebox depends on the sum of the “Shoe Mint” values of the sneakers used for the mint. The higher this value, the higher the chance of dropping multiple boxes.
The result of the mint is not the sneakers themselves, but a box with them (Shoebox). Apart from the minting itself, you can simply buy the box from the built-in marketplace.
Unlike MysteryBox, the Shoebox can be opened instantly, there is no opening fee.
Like most items in STEPN, shoeboxes also have a rarity parameter. The rarer the box, the more likely you are to get rare sneakers out of it.
In this article we looked at an important element of the STEPN game, such as minting sneakers. You can get quite rare trainers as a result of minting. However it is impossible to predict in advance what the ShoeBox will be, as the attributes of the resulting sneakers are allocated randomly according to the rarity parameter of the crossed sneakers.
Play-and-earn games can be highly risky due to price volatility. It is worth remembering that the tokens used by STEPN are not only in-game currency, but also cryptocurrency traded on an exchange. This type of investment requires a balanced approach. Gamers' investment in the game could suffer. We do not encourage you to invest your money in such products, and we are not responsible for any money lost. All investments you make are at your own risk.
