Nike Discontinues Adapt App Shoes with Automatic Lacing

Nike Discontinues Adapt App Shoes with Automatic Lacing

In 2019, Nike revolutionized the sneaker world with the introduction of the Adapt App, a groundbreaking innovation that brought auto-lacing technology to footwear. This August 6, 2024 marks the end of an era, as Nike will remove the Adapt App from the Apple and Android app stores worldwide.

The Adapt app, combined with Nike’s Adapt footwear, offered a futuristic experience by giving wearers the ability to customize the fit of their shoes with a simple tap of their smartphone. This innovation not only offered convenience, but also demonstrated Nike’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of sneaker technology.

Nike’s official statement highlights the success and impact of the Adapt series: “We’ve had a long and successful run with our Adapt footwear and introducing auto-lacing shoe technology. However, we will no longer be making new versions of Adapt footwear.” The decision signals a shift in focus for the sportswear giant, potentially toward new and emerging technologies.

For those who have embraced Adapt technology, there is no need to worry. Your Adapt shoes will continue to function without the app. The shoes are designed with built-in memory to retain your preferred fit settings, so core functionality remains intact even after the app is removed.

The retirement of the Adapt app marks a major transition in Nike’s technology journey. While it marks the end of the Adapt line, it opens the door for future innovation. Nike has always been a leader in fusing technology with sportswear, and this move hints at the possibility of even more advanced solutions on the horizon.

As we bid farewell to the Adapt app, we look forward to what Nike has in store next. The legacy of the Adapt series will undoubtedly inspire future developments and continue to shape the smart footwear landscape.

Stay tuned for more updates and keep your Adapt shoes ready, because they still contain a piece of Nike’s innovative spirit.
