Michael J. Fox was stunned by the Nike Mag self-lacing shoes he picked up when he went to the future in the second instalment of the Back to the Future series. That promise of self-lacing shoes has inspired Nike ever since, and they’ve continued on their quest to bring self-lacing shoes to the market. The most notable example is the Nike Adapt BB, which just received a new Wolf Grey colourway.
The Adapt BB is part of the Nike Mag shoe line, and the new Wolf Grey pays homage to that original shoe. The shoes themselves come with a grey Flyknit upper and the FitAdapt self-lacing component. The tongue and heel are decorated with green, red, and yellow accent dots that recall the Mag’s LED lights.
The midsole has a blue paint splatter pattern on it. The midsole is made of Nike’s Cushion Foam. The lateral side of the shoe features an oversized Swoosh and has two light-up buttons. The Adapt shoes have the added feature of providing a customized fit when you pair them with your smartphone via the Nike Adapt app.
These new shoes seem poised to follow in the tracks of the 2015 “Marty McFly” Hyperdunks, which saw incredible resale prices after their release. You can pick up a pair for USD$350.
