In 2019 Nike fulfilled the promise of Marty McFly’s Mags by introducing the first self-tightening Adapt BB basketball sneakers, and now it’s plugging the tech into one of its most recognizable shoes ever. As part of a 25th anniversary release, the patent leather-covered Air Jordan XI is coming out in both a Jubilee black/white color way and this self-lacing equipped Air Jordan XI Adapt model.
Like previous Adapt models, the Jordan XI allows users to change colors of the lights and adjust fit via an app that links to the shoes using Bluetooth. There’s no listed price — Nice Kicks pegs them at $500 — but the shoes will go on sale via the Nike SNKRS app on December 30th.
Future meets familiar.
