“Run for it Marty!” It has taken 28 years of brainstorming and 11 years of R&D but Nike has finally launched the self-lacing trainer. The HyperAdapt 1.0, features EARL, ‘electro-adaptive reactive laces’ a technology that adapts the fit of the laces to the individual wearer’s foot shape and weight distribution. Each shoe has a sensor, battery, motor, and cable system that adjusts based on an algorithmic pressure equation. Insert your foot and the shoe tightens automatically until it notices friction points, but there are also two buttons are on hand to tweak tightness to perfection. The HyperAdapt 1.0 will hit retailers on November 28th. Form an orderly queue, just behind Brogue.
