Nike HyperAdapt 1.0
During Nike’s annual Innovation Summit this past March, the sportswear brand revealed its forthcoming HyperAdapt 1.0 shoe. The groundbreaking sneaker features nylon laces that contract and loosen with just the touch of a button—hence the acronym “E.A.R.L.” emblazoned on the tongue that stands for Electro Adaptive Reactive Lacing. If that isn’t futuristic enough, its midsole lights up once the auto-lacing system is initiated.
Retailing at a whopping $720 USD, the shoe doesn’t come cheap. The folks over at MindTribe carefully look apart the shoe, and details everything from FlyWire works with the motor and an inside look at the charger.
