Nike’s Adapt Auto Max ‘Motherboard’ Is A High-Tech Self-Lacing Sneaker Icon

Nike’s Air Max range has existed for over 30-years, and in that time the Northwestern sportswear giant has bestowed the iconic shoes with a vast array of updates and advancements, though probably none more radical than Nike’s latest offering born out of the legendary Air Max lineage: the Adapt Auto Max “Motherboard.”

As the name suggests, the athletic brand’s primary focus when delivering this new iteration of Air Maxes was technology, and as a result the company has created something of a smart shoe. Like Nike’s original self-lacing BB basketball shoes, the Motherboard features the same automatic FitAdapt technology, which is controlled manually via controls located on the shoe’s midsole. This new version also allows you to save and preset exact fittings. These gadgets for your feet can also be tightened through a smartphone (or smartwatch), which can also be used to control the color the Motherboard’s indicator lights are emitting. Outfitted with a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) plate that extends around the foot, bolstering stability, the shoe doesn’t just boast unique and novel tech, but also a pretty bold aesthetic design, with a futuristic take on the Air Max. Available now, the Nike Adapt Auto Max “Motherboard” has been priced at $400.
