Nike Adapt Huarache: Nike’s first self-lacing lifestyle sneaker
Nike Adapt Huarache has the comfort and lightweight feel of the 1991 ski boot-inspired Huarache designed by Nike’s innovator Tinker Hatfield. This time, it’s packaged under a much smarter guise using auto-lacing cables that adapt to the shape of the foot in real-time.
Nike draws two worlds together for the Nike Adapt Huarache by integrating state-of-the-art technology with fashionable footgear. The Adapt Huaraches are dressed in exciting colorways, from subdued white and racer blue to vibrant Opti Yellow and Jade Orange.
