Consequently, smart technology is everywhere whether it’s a phone or a TV. Likewise, the famous sports brand Nike presents the Nike Adapt BB, a sports shoe that provides ultimately custom fit by combining a modern power-lacing system with a smart app & regularly updated firmware for keeping the system up to the mark. This new shoe first displayed in the new Nike Adapt BB basketball shoe show.
The custom motor & gear train on the shoe senses the tension required by the foot & adjust that perfectly to keep the foot snug. Certainly, the tensile strength of the underfoot lacing is able to pull a total 32 pounds of force to secure the foot throughout a range of any movement. For control, the Nike app on a smart-phone is needed for sure. As the basketball players will need different fit settings for the game so that the app can provide that accordingly.
Altogether, the Nike Adapt BB shoe went over a series of tests for ensuring the performance and stability. Some of them are- impact tests, temperature test, end-of-life tests. The shoe will last for a very long time, approx 10 thousands of cycles long. Also, the waterproof test will ensure stability on the sweatiest feet for a player or a rainy occasion. For the testing purpose, Nike came with a special test team from an elite group of professional players from every field. They put the shoe through an in-depth trialing period for ensuring everything is going well. With the price range of the $350, this shoe is truly a marvelous example of engineering. If you are a sports person, you should have a shoe like this one, and enjoy the winning!
Furthermore, the ‘Eric Avar’, Nike VP Creative Director of Innovation said- “We picked basketball as the first sport for Nike Adapt intentionally because of the demands that athletes put on their shoes. During a normal basketball game the athlete’s foot changes and the ability to quickly change your fit by loosening your shoe to increase blood flow and then tighten again for performance is a key element that we believe will improve the athlete’s experience.”
