After taking a sneak peek earlier this week, we’re now getting an on foot look at the brand new Nike Adapt BB. Acting as a successor to the wildly popular HyperAdapt 1.0 of 2016, this shoe is truly the future of sneakers.
As mentioned in an early leak, the Adapt BB takes the form of a basketball shoe. Upon slipping your foot in, the shoe will automatically come to life, lighting up and adjusting to the shape of your foot so you always get the perfect fit. The innovative self-lacing system has also been fully reworked. A small engine inside the midsole pulls the laces to tighten the Flyknit and quad-axial mesh upper. As Nike FitAdapt technology has evolved, the engine has become smaller and lighter, enabling more applications across more sports.

Additionally, unlike its predecessor, this basketball sneaker charges wirelessly by setting them on a mat.
Expected to get a wider release in February 2019, the Nike Adapt BB will set you back around £300, which is considerably cheaper compared to the HyperAdapt 1.0. Are you hyped for this release?
