Nike has announced the new Adapt Huaraches, a modern redesign of the Huarache line with a self-draining engine that can be controlled via Siri. Users (wearers?) Can use the Nike Adapt app "Siri, let go of my shoes" on their Apple Watch or iPhone to loosen their shoes.
The Adapt Huaraches have the same neoprene bootie and supporting exoskeleton as the original 1991 Air Huaraches, but they add two LED lights that can change colors via the app. The app offers preset modes that can be set to different colors and can change fit depending on your foot type and activity (such as when you are just chilling at the office or on the road during a trip).
Nike says users can set up Siri shortcuts for the & # 39; most used functions of the shoe & # 39 ;, which is funny because you can only do so much with shoes. You can put them on and you can take them off. There are two of them! I think with the color-changing functions of the Adapt Huaraches you can also say: "Siri, change my lights to a peppy green." Let me know if you have more ideas for Siri shortcuts that you can create.
The Adapt Huaraches will be released on September 13 through Nike & # 39; s SNKRS app and select retailers. There is no price yet, but for comparison: the self-lacing, Bluetooth-compatible Adapt BB sneakers that were released earlier this year cost $ 350. The Adapt BB's got into trouble shortly after they were released when a poor Android update caused pairing problems, which prevented the sneakers from being tightened or worn. Siri has a hard time understanding speech as it is, so don't be surprised if you ask Siri to take off your shoes and it will tell you again.
