NIKE unveils the shoe lacing by itself

Anno di pubblicazione: 2016

niket-2-770x454Nike launches on the market the first shoe able to fasten by itself.  The product will be in stores by 2016 holidays (November)

HyperAdapt 1.0, this is the name of the new model which  takes advantage of the  so called  “adaptive fit” technology;  it has a sensor, a battery, a motor and a system of cables, using an algorithm, adjusting the shoe lacing.  In particular, once put the foot in the shoe , this one automatically tightens  until the right level of friction is reached and, if the system is not congenial to the wearer, there are a couple of buttons located near the tongue allowing  the manually adjustable lacing. The motivation moving  the team Nike to create this shoe was of course  the innovation need but,  above all, the need to offer athletes a shoe able to  best protect  foot and improve posture. The shoe, claims the company, is the result of 28 years of brainstorming and 11  of research.
