It was 1989 when the world first saw the idea of self-tying kicks. Michael J. Fox had an epic moment early in Back To The Future 2 as he watched his Nike Air Mags light up and fuse together. Sneakerheads have been patiently waiting since 1989 for the chance to own a self-lacing shoe. We hoped the first adaptive lacing shoe would be the Air Mag, but Nike created a fully new shoe and has taken its first baby step into the future.
Designed by the greats Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker, the Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 is a running shoe built for athletes that will stop the shoe from sagging and slipping off. Adaptive lacing technology ties the laces tight and tight to keep the athlete’s foot locked in without worrying about your shoes getting loose during competition. Two snaps on the side of the shoe are positioned to fasten or loosen the laces. Inside the shoes are sensors that will detect when your shoes need to be tied tighter. Superstar athlete Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the first athletes to try on the shoe and was amazed by the technology. Nike really took the world by storm and this technology is really incredible!
Fans are hoping for the shoe to be released this spring but no release date has been confirmed yet. For now we know that three ways colours will be displayed. One in white with a brown base, black stars, and a smooth gray tint, it was incredible. Nike never disappoints and they’ve taken the first steps in self-lacing technology. Hopefully this technology will be featured in Nike Air Mag but for now it will satisfy the world. Check out the Nike Video and Images below and stay tuned for more information about the release date.
