If you are a big fan of cool sneakers and hate tying laces, you are in luck… if you have tonnes of spare cash lying around. Nike has officially revealed the price of Nike’s self-lacing athletic shoe, the HyperAdapt 1.0 – a jaw-dropping US$720.
Only available in two New York stores on December 1, 2016(it will be available more widely in late December), you might find a pair at Nike’s Soho location or at the Nike+ ClubHouse. The black/white-blue lagoon colourway will be available first, with the metallic silver/black-white version rolling out later in December.
Lucky Nike+ app users will get access to purchase this pair of awesome kicks today, November 28, for a limited time!
Not to be confused with the Nike Mag, the replica of Marty McFly’s sneakers in Back to The Future, the Nike HyperAdapt is the first self-lacing athletic shoe that is being released by the sports giant to the public. Nike claims that the HyperAdapt will be lightweight and rechargeable, with the LED lights lasting about two weeks. The self-lacing is achieved using what is akin to automatic buckling like how roller blades tighten.
The HyperAdapt will definitely drive collectors insane and demand is expected to be high, so be sure to claim a pair for yourself if you are interested. We just hope version 2.0 or 3.0 will be more affordable!
