Nike announced this week the new Adapt Huarache, a new model of sneakers, from the well-known Huarache line, which integrates a different system of laces. The news is that the laces can be controlled via voice commands given to Siri, Apple's virtual assistant. With this pair of sneakers, the user can simply say "Siri, unfasten my shoes" to see the shoelaces come loose.
Added to this feature are two LED lights, whose colors can be changed in the Nike Adapt app. The application already has predefined color schemes, but you can customize them freely. In addition, there are also other adjustment configurations which contemplate how tight the foot is and the activity that the wearer will perform with them on. This means that it is possible to create a walking mode with one type of setting, a running mode with another type of setting and another mode with a third type of setting, for example.
The brand adds that it is possible to create custom voice commands, which offers a new level of control over the shoes.
The new Adapt Huaraches will be launched on September 13th through the SNKRS app and select retailers. There are no confirmed prices yet, but the value should be over $ 300.
