It cannot be denied that everyone is excited for the HyperAdapt 1.0. It is Nike’s first ever ‘adaptive fit’ shoes that loosens and tightens to your foot with the use of its push button. Before the HyperAdapt, there was a Nike Mag, the movie-prop high top that was discovered in Back to the Future 2 in 1989. It was inspired by the Nike designers and engineers who work for more than two decades to produce power-lacing reality.
Finally, Nike has done it and produced a limited edition line that is full of functioning Nike Mags. The products are all equipped with an adaptive fit technology. It will also benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Nike also produced a replica of the mags in the past, but it doesn’t come with adaptive fit technology. The original Nike Mags are powered by the crew members who pulled some strings to tighten or loosen the shoes. The technology exists with the help of Nike’s engineers which is spearheaded by Tiffany Beers, a senior innovator. They invented the HyperAdapt technology and incorporate it with lacing engine and a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery. The shoes are the same with the shoes in FOX wore in BTFF.
