Sneaker News – Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 – AKA E.A.R.L December Launch – US only
The first performance vehicle for sport-informed adaptive lacing, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 challenges traditional interpretations of fit, proposing an ultimate solution to individual idiosyncrasies in lacing and tension preferences — and it’s just the tip of the adaptive iceberg.
- The HyperAdapt has its own nickname: E.A.R.L. which stands for Electro Adaptive Reactive Lacing
- The blue segment in the midsole lights up for a few seconds when the lacing engine is engaged and dim after six seconds
- LEDs on the heelcap light up when the lacing engine is engaged and radiate to reflect whether the shoe is being tightened or loosened
- The shoes come with a charging unit and the rechargeable lithium-polymer battery takes three hours for a full charge and lasts about two weeks
