If you’re an athlete, you’re on the right platform. Get to know about the right wears that will give you a totally new experience on the playground! The product particularly focuses on Basketball players and is a treat to their feet!

With an overall industrial revolution stepping in, how can one forget the daily wearable? Nike is introducing the next generation of foot-wear, ‘self-lacing sneakers’. If a visit to the nearest Nike outlet was already in your to-do list, you must gift yourself with Adapt BB and you won’t ever regret your decision.

Let me explain to you a little more. A few years back, Nike launched the Back to Future franchise, making technologically equipped sneakers. Whether it be the Nike Air Mag or its successors, the entire range has left people drooling.

The design credits are held by Tinker Hatfield. What makes the sneakers stand out from the crowd, is the self-lacing technology that enables the shoe fit to your foot. Years after the launch, the sneakers were still heavy on the pockets for an average consumer.

Vouching for its product, Nike says at a press release, “Getting the right fit from a performance shoe is both personal and complicated. Consider basketball: Over the course of a basketball game, the foot can expand almost a half-size during play. A level of fit that feels comfortable at one point might feel constrictive just 24 minutes later,”

But the sneaker is not confined to basketball players only. They are designed as per the needs of the majority of the athletes. Adapt BB comes with partially the same design as of HyperAdapt, but is technologically advanced and targets the mass market. If you wish to play Basketball like never before, you have to give these next-level sneakers a try!

Peeking a little more into the specs, the product not only molds itself as per the user’s foot to make him perform better but also cares about foot health, which is the first and foremost priority of an athlete. The shoe keeps a track of your foot activity and monitors foot shape continuously to keep the user comfortable at all times. It can be controlled via your smartphone and the laces can be adjusted accordingly. There is no magic involved, a small engine has been incorporated within to perform the task.

Lastly, the Adapt BB has wireless charging capability, and a fully charged one lasts for about 10-14 days. A pair will cost you $350. So, start your savings today!
