Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Self-Lacing shoes! What?!
Yes you heard it right. Nike is bringing out self-lacing shoes, called as “HyperAdapt 1.0”. As we all know, nike is always innovating but this is something that will make them the king of innovation. Self-lacing shoe is something I really want. Nike is adapting according to constantly evolving tech generation. But this comes at a great price. Nike’s self-lacing shoe will be available only at selected store at a whopping price of $720.
In 2016 Nike launched Mag, which was inspired from ‘Back to the future part-II’ and the standout feature was its power laces, which would tie itself. HyperAdapt is the consumer version of Mag.
The shoe uses a system that is called ‘E.A.R.L.’ short for Electro Adaptive Reactive Lacing, which kicks in as soon as your heels touch the insole. There are two buttons provided which are used to provided adjustments according to the user. You can increase or decrease the tightness. There is also a auto mode where the laces adjusts itself according to the wearer.
There is a blue LED under the shoes which indicates the amount of juice left inside the battery. Bright blue means it is fully charged. The light turns on whenever HyperAdapt is in action. In order to buy these shoes you have to book an appointment which is as of now available only in New York city. But I know Nike fans will find some way or the another. So, good luck with them folks!
