Hover boards may not be a reality yet, but if you’ve also wanted a pair of self-lacing shoes since seeing “Back to the Future two”, your luck is about to get better.
Nike Unveiled its newest self-lacing technology Tuesday, called Nike Adapt B-B, the self-lacing basketball shoe is controlled by an app.
It’s part of a product family called Fit-Adapt, which feature gear that uses apps and firmware that can be continually updated.
Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics will wear the shoes in an NBA game Wednesday night, and Nike has bigger plans.
Once the kinks are ironed out, the company plans to expand fit-adapt into other sports and lifestyle products.
If all this seems like deja vu, you may be remembering when Nike made self-lacing shoes modeled after the ones in “Back to the Future Two” in 2016.
Those special edition shoes were never sold and only 89 pairs were given away in a lottery.
The company also sells a self-lacing shoe called hyper-adapt which can not be updated and does n’t use an app.
