Profile

Nike basketball continues to refine its ground-breaking basketball sneaker to make it more suitable for on-court play. The updated Nike Adapt BB features a large Air Zoom Turbo cushion for bouncier court feel. Nike designers also reconfigured the Adapt BB 2.0's midsole stack height for a smoother ride.

The highlight of the Nike Adapt BB 2.0 is the power lacing system that provides an unparalleled fit at the push of a button. Owners can also fine-tune the fit with their smartphone by installing the Nike Adapt App.

Performance

Cushion. The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 utilizes a mix of Cushlon foam and Air Zoom Turbo for a highly responsive cushioning platform that doesn't interfere with the Adapt mechanism. This improved setup provides all-around comfort and engages at different angles to help you cut through the defense with ease.

Traction. These Nike basketball shoes feature a durable translucent outsole with a modified herringbone traction pattern for increased grip on the hardwood.

Closure. The Adapt BB 2.0 is powered by the Nike FitAdapt technology that electronically adjusts to the shape of the foot. FitAdapt is a breakthrough lacing system that provides a customized and consistent fit.

The FitAdapt technology can be controlled remotely with the use of Nike's Adapt App. This feature gives you complete control of the shoe with the use of your smartphone.

These mid-top basketball shoes also have a molded heel piece that keeps the ankle stable and locked in place.

Material

The Nike Adapt BB 2.0's upper is constructed of moldable TPU yarns and stretchable ballistic mesh. These lightweight materials are designed to provide support, breathability, and flexibility. 

Style

The Adapt BB 2.0 features an improved design to make it easier to wear. Nike designers removed the Flyknit shroud and opened up the collar for easy on and off. The padded tongue also improves the overall fit.

These premium basketball sneakers also have more immersive detailing than the original model. The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 features a larger Swoosh made of pixelated textures. 

With the Nike Adapt App, owners can adjust the fit, change presets, check battery levels, and customize the lights through their smartphone or smartwatch.
