Nike’s first general public release with self-lacing capabilities will be the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0. The sneakers go on sale December 1st for the hefty price of $720. Do you think the sneakers are worth the premium price?
The potential of adaptive lacing for the athlete is huge, Hatfield adds, as it would provide tailored-to-the-moment custom fit. “It is amazing to consider a shoe that senses what the body needs in real-time. That eliminates a multitude of distractions, including mental attrition, and thus truly benefits performance.”
