Tying your shoes may soon be a thing of the past. Nike has combined innovation and style to create it’s latest self-lacing shoe. The HyperAdapt 1.0 is as cool as its name and it’s Nike’s effort to make a shoe that fits your foot just right. The shoe is “the first performance vehicle for Nike’s latest platform breakthrough, adaptive lacing.”
Want a shoe that boasts digital, mechanical, and electronic engineering research? The HyperAdapt 1.0 comes equipped with a sensor that automatically tightens when your heel hits it, and that’s not all. You can also adjust the tightness on the side of the shoe to customize your personal level of comfort. The HyperAdapt 1.0 is currently one of the few shoes on the market that helps you create a one of a kind experience for your foot.
Obviously the HyperAdapt 1.0 was designed for athletes. According to Nike.com, the creators wanted to rid the undue pressure caused by having tight slippage when competing. “Precise, consistent, personalized lockdown can now be manually adjusted on the fly. That’s an important step, because feet undergo an incredible amount of stress during competition,” said Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield. Hatfield along with others have been working on the precise design of the shoe since 2013.
If you want to step into the future with Nike, you can this year. The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be available late this year in three different colors. The only catch is, you have to be a Nike+ member in order to get the shoe. It may not be long before self-lacing shoes become the norm in footwear. Until then you can get your hands on the highly advanced HyperAdapt 1.0 soon.
