For the first time ever, Jordan Brand is making use of Nike’s self-lacing Adapt technology in one of its sneakers. The Air Jordan 11 Adapt brings a customizable fit at the touch of a button to one of the basketball world’s most iconic silhouettes. It drops this December 30, but it’s available to secure at StockX right now.
Ever since that pair of self-lacing Nike high tops appeared in Back to the Future II back in 1989, sneakerheads were hungry for a shoe that didn’t require any bending down. It wasn’t until 2016 that the Swoosh released its first IRL self-lacer, though.
With Nike’s pioneering FitAdapt technology, the Air Jordan 11 Adapt allows users to customize the fit of the basketball sneaker via a smartphone app. Through the Adapt app, users can also change the color and flashing pattern of the self-lacing buttons on the sneaker. Nike Adapt shoes are powered by rechargeable batteries.
This all happens in time for the Jordan 11’s 25th-anniversary, with Nike marking the occasion with several new AJ11 releases. Combining icon status with future-forward tech, the Air Jordan 11 Adapt goes with a black and white upper, much like the OG colorway of the Jordan 11. Here, though, the AJ11 gets treated to infrared details, midsole lights, and a translucent outsole.
StockX market data is reflecting the hype expected around this first for Jordan Brand, with the sneaker currently selling for an average of $660. Its 52-week high price reached $2,214 on the platform, which means it could be a smart time to cop a future classic. The US, EU, and UK plug versions are all available at StockX.
