The Jumpman has entered the future!!!
The Jordan Brand has officially announced its first ever self-lacing sneaker … and they look like they’d get Marty McFly’s approval.
Dubbed the Air Jordan 11 Adapt, the sneakers are the first of Michael Jordan‘s iconic signature line to use Nike’s electronically-controlled lacing technology … and will mark the 25th anniversary of the original kicks released in 1995.
Remember, sneakerheads lost their minds when the Swoosh introduced the Nike MAG back in 2016 — ya know, the “Back to the Future” kicks — which also featured the Adapt tech.
While the self-lacing tech has showed up on other iconic shoes in recent years, it marks the first time it will appear on an Air Jordan shoe.
Fun fact — shoe god Tinker Hatfield envisioned a lace-less design when he initially drew up the epic kicks years ago … and now it’s kinda finally happening!!
So, how do these things work?? The kicks are controlled by an app that will help customize the comfort … as well as the color of the button on the side of the sneaks.
The kicks are set to be released next month … and rumors say they will come with a $500 price tag.
Maybe ask Santa??
