Nike Updates The Iconic Air Jordan XI With Its ‘Adapt’ Auto-Lacing System

Nov 12, 2020

Precise fitment is one of the more crucial aspects of delivering optimally-performing athletic garments and gear. As such, Nike has spent the last few years developing and honing its “Adapt” electronic self-lacing system that ensures near-perfect fitment every time, and after unveiling numerous basketball- and running-focused models, the Northwest activewear brand has bestowed the self-lacing system onto one of its most iconic shoes, the Air Jordan XI.

Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the original Tinker Hatfield-penned Air Jordan XI, this high-tech version of the classic sneaker maintains the original model’s silhouette while giving the design a few modern aesthetic updates. The biggest update is undoubtedly the addition of the Adapt auto-lacing system that’s controlled via a pair of buttons at the base of the shoe. The buttons that control the lacing system also have customizable RGB lights and glow patterns that can be programmed through a connected “Jordan-Flavored” smartphone app that can also be used to adjust the lacing. What’s more, the shoes come with a base that wirelessly charged the Air Jordan XI Adapt. Pricing has yet to be revealed, though the Air Jordan XI Adapt is scheduled for a release on December 30, 2020.
