In celebration of the 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend, Nike has finally released the follow up to last year’s Adapt BB self-lacing shoe. Redesigned to provide more comfort and bounce, as well as improve the wearer’s heel to toe action, the Adapt BB 2.0 represents a huge leap forward in the world of cutting-edge shoe tech.
Nevertheless, considering these sneakers retail for $400 ($50 more expensive than the first-gen), they certainly aren’t for everyone. Similar to last year’s version, BB 2.0 features Bluetooth connectivity, allowing owners to customize and update the shoe via an app. And to ensure they’re always ready when you are, you’ll need to remember to charge them “every couple of weeks.”
The black/bright crimson/white Adapt BB 2.0 colorway was officially released this past Sunday. A “gamer-exclusive” red/black variant called the “Chicago” is expected to launch in the coming weeks. At the time of publishing, Nike has yet to release pricing or launch specifics for the Chicago edition.
