Sneaker News – Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 – AKA E.A.R.L December Launch – US only

Nike Hyperadapt 1.0

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.


Powered by an underfoot-lacing mechanism, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is the payoff of significant research into digital, electrical and mechanical engineering. The technology is “adaptive fit,” and each shoe has a sensor, battery, motor, and cable system that adjusts fit based on an algorithmic pressure equation. When a foot is inserted, the shoe tightens automatically until it senses friction points. There are a pair of buttons near the tongue to adjust fit as needed. That means the undue pressure caused by tight tying and slippage resulting from loose laces are relics of the past. Precise, consistent, personalized lockdown can now be manually adjusted on the go.

Quick Facts

  • 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
