The first performance vehicle for adaptive lacing, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is the payoff of significant research in digital, electrical and mechanical engineering. The shoe provides precise, consistent, personalized lockdown that can be manually adjusted on the go
Functional simplicity reduces a typical athlete concern, distraction. “When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten,” explains Tiffany Beers, Senior Innovator, NIKE, Inc., and the project’s technical lead. “Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect.”
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.
Looks like the future arrived today.
