Have you ever wondered what it would be like to not have to lace up a pair of athletic shoes? What would it be like if you could simply step into your shoes and they could lace themselves? It sounds like a pretty futuristic idea, but Nike has been working hard to unveil a sneaker that provides this exact function. In a recent Nike Innovation Conference, Nike unveiled the “HyperAdapt 1.0.” Let’s learn more about this shoe:
Hailed on the Nike website as “the future of footwear,” this shoe uses innovative adaptive lace technology to tie your shoes for you. Not only are the shoes tied for you, but the fit is customized so to make your shoes feel as comfortable as possible.
When you step into the shoe, your heel touches a sensor that activates the shoelace tying function, and your shoelaces automatically begin to tighten. On the side of the shoe, you can loosen or tighten the sneaker to your preference by pressing a button.
Although the HyperAdapt 1.0 shoes will be available to the public, only people who have bought the Nike+ could be eligible for purchase. Once you have the app, you have to be selected for the purchase process and you can pick up the shoes in stores in major cities in the US.
Only a limited amount of people will have access to these amazing self-lacing shoes. If you cannot purchase a pair of HyperAdapt1.0, then you can still come to Lace Kings for your favorite sports shoelaces. Your athletic shoes and other laceup shoes still require laces, which Lace Kings is happy to provide. Shop Lace Kings today for colored shoelaces and other fun shoelaces today.
The best way to determine your shoe laces size is to measure the length of the shoelaces you are replacing and most closely match it with our size options. **This will give you the most accurate fit**
If you are unable to measure the old shoe laces you want to replace, refer to the shoe lace size chart below. Keep in mind, these are suggestions and can be slightly affected by your lacing preferences, if you have a quite large or very small shoe size, and the distance between eyelets.
The correct Lace Kings shoe lace length is generally determined by how many pairs of eyelets (or holes) your shoes have.
*SHORTER: If your shoe eyelets are positioned very close together across the tongue, you may want to choose your length from the shorter side of the above chart. The smaller option can also be a good choice for petite women's sneakers or children's sizes. Also, if you prefer to leave your shoes untied, the shorter size may be preferable.
*LONGER: Choose the longer option for most men's shoe sizes or if you prefer to have enough length at the end to double knot.
*Note: Choose your size according to how many eyelets you plan on using on your shoe to get the best fit if you do not plan on lacing them all the way up to the top pair of eyelets.
