With its new Adapt BB, #Nike's created a basketball shoe that can tighten or loosen itself to fit your foot just right. More unique tech like this, please. [Read More]

Summary… * Machine-Made

With its new Adapt BB, #Nike’s created a basketball shoe that can tighten or loosen itself to fit your foot just right – no laces necessary.
The other reason is that this technology is specifically designed to enhance the shoe’s functionality as protection for your feet – nothing more.

Opinion… * Man-Made


The lace engine built into the #Nike Adapt BB shoe, lets you adjust your fit using an app or the buttons on the sole. #AdaptBB #SmartClothing #BackToTheFuture #Trend
