Nike Basketball’s recent Nike Adapt BB release brings what we thought was the future into the present.
Whether you feel this is pure gimmick or pure innovation — maybe a little bit of both — it’s still crazy to think that we have an auto-lacing basketball shoe that was designed and engineered for actual on-court gameplay.
I did my best to give you a bit of information regarding the tech specs and what to expect if you happen to have not grabbed a pair upon it’s initial launch. However once I put them on, I was swept up by the holy crap-ness of it all as I never thought I’d see something like this make its way to market in my lifetime. I come from the 80’s, a time when we thought we’d have flying cars, hover boards, personal jetpacks and auto-lacing shoes sometime in the future. None of those things are here… except the shoes.
I will be playing in the Nike Adapt BB and giving them a performance review so give me a few weeks to take care of that. I’ve still got a handful of shoes to finish before the Adapt BB but I’ll get it all done.
Thanks for watching and be sure to leave your thoughts/experiences in the Nike Adapt BB if you have any.
