Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 Release Date, Latest News & Updates: Nike Self-Lacing Sneakers Releasing In Stores Next Month; To Cost More Than $700?
Sneaker enthusiasts everywhere joyed at the news that Nike would finally be releasing a self-lacing line of sneakers, a la "Back to the Future Part 2." The self-lacing sneakers, called the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0, have long been in-demand since we first saw Marty McFly wear those automatic laced kicks in the movie.
That movie fantasy is now going to be a reality once again when the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 drops in stores next month. What other features will the futuristic sneaker have? How much will the sneakers cost?
According to High Snobiety, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 sneakers will automatically adjust to the wearer as he or she puts them on. The brand new line will take inspiration from the previously released Nike MAG sneakers which feature a similar self-lacing and smart-adjusting capabilities. The automatic adjustment feature on the HyperAdapts work through sensors and high-tech miniature motors fit the user's own foot.
When the wearer puts the shoe on, the wearer's heel will hit a built-in sensor inside the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0. Once the sensor is activated, the mini-motors installed within the shoe will automatically tighten the shoe to wearer's perfect size. If the HyperAdapts adjust a little too loose or a little too tight, the sneaker will allow users to make the necessary size adjustments by using the two pre-installed buttons on the sides of the sneakers.
However, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 sneakers will cost more than a pretty penny. As reported by Engadget, the sneakers will made available to the public and will hit stores on December 1 of this year and will cost $720.
The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 sneaker will be able to be purchased through appointment only during its initial release. So, sneaker enthusiasts should plan accordingly with their retail outlets to make sure they can get these super cool kicks as early as possible.
