Day One of Nike’s Innovation For Everybody summit is in the books, and among the many storylines to have emerged from this day-long showcase of the future of Nike, the HyperAdapt 1.0 sneaker stands out as the most significant. The HyperAdapt 1.0 was a collaborative effort between Tinker Hatfield and Senior Innovator Tiffany Beers, who is credited from bringing in the wearable self-lacing shoe to life. The shoes have hands-free power-lacing capabilities thanks to sensors at the heel (it automatically tightens once your foot is in), and the lockdown can be adjusted to personal preference using the buttons on the upper. The shoes also feature “E.A.R.L.” on the left shoe, which is an acronym for Electro Adaptive Reactive Lacing, the technology that makes the HyperAdapt 1.0 possible. The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is set to release this Holiday in three colorways exclusively for Nike+ members. Stay tuned for an interview with Tiffany Beers soon and enjoy this detailed gallery below.
