Earlier this month Nike unleashed the self-lacing HyperAdapt 1.0 to the public. The shoe triumphs through Electro Adaptive Reactive Lacing (E.A.R.L.), and explores the future of footwear with innovation once thought impossible.
But getting to the retail release wasn’t an easy process. Designers Tinker Hatfield and Tiffany Beers went though hundreds of thousands of test hours while also going through several design silhouettes before landing on the retail version of the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0.
Today, Nike has unveiled a few different prototypes of the self-lacing shoe and you’d be surprised of the shapes and styles that predated the retail release. Give them a look below and share your thoughts.
