Nike Adapt BB Self-Lacing Shoes Are Packed with Tech

 |  |  |  |  |  |  January 16, 2019


Most of us didn’t get the limited edition Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 self-lacing shoes when the came out in 2017. Well, now we have another chance. Nike recently unveiled a new version that is more advanced, and thankfully, more affordable. They are called Nike Adapt BB, and they are perhaps the most technologically-advanced sets of footwear ever made.

Like their predecessors, they’re capable of mechanically tightening onto your feet. However, the HyperAdapt 1.0 used physical buttons to lace up the shoes, but with the Nike Adapt BB, users can fine-tune the fit using their smartphone. Now that is a little more futuristic. Each shoe has a custom motor and gear train that senses the tension needed on the foot and adjusts accordingly.

Nike says the underfoot lacing on these basketball shoes is able to pull 32 pounds of force. You can adjust the settings using the app on the fly; or even on the Marty McFly. The app will remember how tight or loose you prefer your laces in different situations like warm-ups, gameplay, or resting. Another neat feature is how they charge – using a wireless charging mat.

These Nike Adapt BB App-enabled Self-lacing Shoes will be available on February 17, 2019, at 10:00AM EST for $350. That is less than half of what the HyperAdapt 1.0 cost when they came out. Pretty sweet.
