Nike Hyperadapt Teardown

As flying cars and Hoverboards have shown, it's not easy to bring the technologies found in Back to the Future Part II to life. This Nike Hyperadapt Teardown takes a look at how the auto-lacing system from the film was recreated. Hidden inside the shoe are sensors to let it know when you've it put on and buttons to let you adjust the fit. Heavy duty motors attached to Flywire pull the laces tight, arrays of LEDs provide lighting effects, wireless charging eliminates the need for battery changes, and an ARM Cortex M4 processor runs the show. It's like having a motor-laden smartphone hidden inside each shoe.

  • Adidas 3D Runner

    Adidas has been experimenting with 3D printing as a way of making shoes for a while. Only now can you actually buy a pair. Being released exclusively through Adidas Confirmed in New York, the Adidas 3D Runner is an all-black look at the future of footwear. It has an engineered 3D structure that's more dense in high-stress areas and less dense in others for optimal performance and weight, and is paired with a 3D printed heel counter integrated into the midsole and a black Primeknit upper. In the future, the company hopes to match the 3D structure to your own personal footprint, but until then, these will do nicely.
