Last year, Nike debuted the Adapt BB, a basketball sneaker with advanced power-lacing technology. Nike has now officially unveiled the Adapt BB 2.0, the latest version of their self-lacing basketball sneaker.
The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 was debuted by Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant during last night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans. For its design, Nike has upgraded the 1.0 release with both functional and stylistic enhancements.
While the 1.0 version featured Cushlon foam in the midsole, the 2.0 version adds Air Zoom Turbo cushioning to the forefoot, similarly to the Kyrie line. This provides a bouncier on-court feel. The midsole stack height has also reconfigured, providing a better ride and improved transition from heel to toe while moving.
The Adapt 2.0 BB is also easier to put on. Nike designers removed the Flyknit shroud, opened up the collar, and integrated a stretchable ballistic mesh throughout the upper. Stretchier material also allows the lacing system to provide a more adaptive fit to the foot.
Visually, the Adapt BB 2.0 features a larger Swoosh on the forefoot and a mix of pixelated textures on the upper. The lateral clip on the midsole where the buttons are located has been given a concave geometry, adding more surface area for the lights to reflect onto.
The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 releases on February 16th at select retailers and Nike.com.
