Tinker Hatfield Reveals a New Direction for Nike's HyperAdapt

Tinker Hatfield has just spilled huge news for anyone following Nike’s self-lacing innovations and wondering what’s planned for the future. When Highsnobiety queried whether ‘1.0’ suggests a sequel, Tinker responds, ‘I can’t tell you a lot.’ But then he tells us a lot.

‘There is a 2.0, and it’s specific to basketball. And we think it’s going to be one of the best basketball shoes ever.’ The news that the 2.0 will veer from a lifestyle path is huge. Though it has running in its DNA, you won’t see anyone logging miles in the 1.0. And it gets away with being a non-performance running shoe because runners keep much lower profiles than NBA players. However, if Nike make a basketball shoe, it will obviously need to be one their high-profile athletes can rock on court. This will propel self-lacing sneakers to new levels – which is why when Tinker says the 2.0 will be the greatest shoe to step onto the hardwood, we’re inclined to believe him. Plus, if it’s a basketball shoe, it might be a high-top, which means we might get a silhouette a little closer to Marty McFly's Mag. Maybe.
