HyperAdapt 1.0源自於Nike去（2015）年推出的1款配有「強力鞋帶」之限量鞋款Nike Mag，其設計靈感即是來自於電影「回到未來2」，可依照穿著者的動作調整鞋帶。HyperAdapt 1.0在腳踝部份有設計感應器，當腳滑入鞋中時，鞋帶就會自動綁緊；鞋子側邊的按鈕則可供手動操作，使鞋帶的鬆緊度隨個人偏好調整。
另一雙Nike Anti-Clog Traction 球鞋，採用新款聚合物材質，可防堵水與泥土結合並堵塞於鞋底，從而增加止滑性與減少球鞋的重量，讓使用者動作更輕盈自在。今年的里約奧運會上，運動員們將會穿上這款鞋子參與實戰。
第三款是Nike Air VaporMax，鞋身採用Nike Flyknit的輕盈材質，鞋底的前後掌則採分段式 Air 氣墊。超越傳統的泡綿外底與固定結構，此款新氣墊鞋更具彈性且能獨立活動，同時亦降底鞋子重量和浪費。

Self-lacing Shoe Future Arrives With Nike's HyperAdapt 1.0Of all the cool gadgets and kooky technological advances envisioned by the makers of the "Back to the Future" franchise, the hoverboard is the one that still seems to captivate people. No, not those ridiculous motorized skateboards that you can find kids whirling around on in just about any suburban street in America these days. Marty McFly's hoverboard actually hovered and moved without touching the ground.
Still, the floating surfboard wasn't the only futuristic development that the "Back to the Future" gang thought we'd all be enjoying by 2016. They also hooked Marty up with a sweet pair of self-lacing high tops. Now, Nike is getting ready to hit the market with their own version of those user friendly kicks.
The HyperAdapt 1.0 is the first generation of self-fitting sneakers, a shoe that aims to eliminate some of the hassle and guesswork for athletes when it comes to lacing up. It features what designers at the swoosh factory call "adaptive lacing," technology that forms the shoe to a user's foot and adjusts to movement along the way.
Nike has been a little tight on the details behind how their power-shoe technology works. What we do know is that the shoes rely on a heel sensor to tell them when a foot slips inside and helps adjust the fit accordingly. Buttons on the side allow the wearer to manually adjust that fit on the fly. Those "micro adjustments" make it easier for wearers to make small tweaks to the fit, instead of having to tie and re-tie their kicks until they get it right.
HyperAdapts should be ready to hit the field in late 2016. They're the result of years of research and development by Nike engineers and designers at the company's sprawling Oregon headquarters campus. One of the original prototypes was something like a snowboard boot that fastened itself from beneath the foot. The finished product is a lot less clunky, but the sleek cross-training model still relies on the same under-the-shoe adjusting technology.
The idea is to let athletes focus on the action on the field instead of the sneakers on their feet. They don't have to worry about fumbling over their laces in the middle of a workout or slipping and sliding over loose laces. And if Biff or any of the "Back to the Future" bad guys show up looking for trouble, you don't have to tie hunch over and tie your kicks before you get the heck outta Hill Valley.
