Nike Adapt BB
The Nike Adapt BB is the brand’s latest innovative technology. It boasts of remarkable adaptability on-the-fly, allowing the wearer to achieve optimum fit without fussing over its lacing system. It follows in the tradition of excellence of Nike’s other signature technologies like the Huarache, Flyknit, and Flywire, among others.
The Adapt BB allows the wearer to ensure the optimum fit of his shoes regardless of how intense his activities are. We know that the feet have the uncanny ability to expand or to increase in size as the day progresses or as a game moves on. For instance, it is not unusual for basketball players to “grow” their feet by about half-size within the first two quarters of the game. That’s why many players will need to readjust their shoelaces at halftime to accommodate this change in foot size.
Nike’s FitAdapt technology allows wearers to customize shoe fit settings. This helps ensure that the Nike Adapt BB will loosen up to improve blood circulation to and from the feet. The same technology tightens the lacing system when there is a need for optimum performance on the floor. This adaptive mechanism relies on a couple of technologies that the BB have. A custom motor works well with a gear train to keep track of the tension on the feet. The same mechanism makes the necessary adjustments to make sure you have a snug fit.
There are two buttons on the outsole of these Nike sneakers that activate its FitAdapt technology. One button loosens the lacing system while the other tightens it. You can also use Nike’s Adapt app to control the lacing system.
The implications of Nike’s FitAdapt technology are immense. The Adapt BB is the first of many products that will redefine performance and comfort on and off the court.
