Nike launched its HyperAdapt 1.0 self-lacing sneakers back in 2016. They didn’t have wireless connectivity so you couldn’t lace them up using an app on your phone. The sneakers had physical power buttons for self-lacing which you had to press every time you wanted to activate the self-lacing feature. Nike is going to address this with its first self-lacing basketball shoes. You will be able to control them from a phone.
Nike hasn’t shown off these basketball shoes as yet. However, a video showing different NBA athlets has been posted online which reveals that it will be possible to lace up the shoes with your phone.
This goes to show that Nike has made a major improvement compared to the original HyperAdapts and one that’s going to make the shoes more functional. Also according to reports, the upcoming shoes will cost around $350 and not $720 like the originals. While still expensive, they would at least be in the buying range of more customers this time around.
No further information has been revealed about these basketball shoes at this point in time. Nike fans won’t have to wait for too long to get all of the details, though. Nike is going to officially announce its first self-lacing basketball shoes at an event tomorrow.
The game will never be the same.
