The Revolutionary Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 Releases Soon, But It Won’t Come Cheap

By  | 

It’s almost here! The long awaited, auto-lacing Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 will be releasing on 12/1. Ever since we got word that Nike was planning on dropping an auto-lacing sneaker to the general public, we all couldn’t wait for that day to come. We were all ready to give Nike our hard-earned money, but we recently found out that retail price is set at $720. Now I’m not too sure how many of us are really “down” to pick up a pair.

The shoe is set to release in the three colorways you see above for the retail price of $720, no, that’s not a typo, I really mean $720! Of course, the shoe will feature Nike’s adaptive fit technology that has been in the works for 28 years since it made its debut during Back To The Future Part II. The technology finally became a reality when it was utilized on the Nike Mag, but this is the first time that the shoe will be readily available to the public.

The Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 adaptive fit technology is made up of four main components – a heel sensor lets the shoe know when the foot enters. A cable lacing system takes the place of the traditional lacing unit. A high-tech mini-motor tightens and loosens the cables, and finally a rechargeable battery provides the power and fancy LED lights in the shoe’s outsole unit. Although we’re not exactly sure how many pairs Nike will make, we have good feeling that it will be somewhat limited. Stay tuned as more information begins to drop for this upcoming and highly anticipated release.


Author’s Take

Yo! I’m glad Nike finally figured it out! I’m just a little skeptical on how the shoe will sell with that $1,000 price tag. I guess we’re just going to have to wait and see, right?
