Nike has just unveiled their latest self-lacing technology, now taking on the classic 90s Huarache model. Using what The Swoosh call FitAdapt technology, the Nike Adapt Huarache features built-in motor and cables can be toggled via two midfoot buttons. The sneaker, like most things these days, can also be controlled by the Nike Adapt app, which works in conjunction with the Apple Watch and Siri. (“Siri - tie my shoes!”)
Besides the show-stealing technology, the updated silhouette retains Huarache hallmarks like the heel cage and midsole contours, while a re-worked version of the signature Huarache logo featuring a stylised “H” appears on the packaging.
It should be noted that this Nike Adapt Huarache follows on from the Nike Adapt BB, which also had an app but lacked presets on your watch as well as voice control.
The global release date for the Nike Adapt Huarache is set for 13 September. Time will tell if we see it in SA anytime soon. Retail is set at €350/$350 (about R5500)
