Nike Auto Max Adapt LE 01 sneaker: First look
A new self-lacing sneaker from Nike is on its way and it's even more futuristic than the last.
Nike's first self-lacing sneaker, the Adapt BB, changed the sneaker game forever. An amalgamation of fashion and technology, the kicks were an instant sellout when they landed. Now, shortly after dropping a second iteration titled Adapt BB 2.0, Nike is taking a different approach and is gearing up to drop an all-new silhouette.
Release date: Unknown
Where to buy: Nike SNKRS site
Thanks to sneaker tweeter Modern Notoriety, we've had a first glimpse at the new sneakers, dubbed the Auto Max Adapt LE 01. Arriving in a relatively unembellished grey neoprene upper, the kicks have a futuristic air to them, with 3D elements working to hide the clever lacing system.
A bright neon-orange appears on the outsole and heel to give the pair a truly eye-catching element, while a rigid toe guard and grey Swooshes on the sides round out the design.

We've now also had a peep at a second colourway of the kicks, which sees a grey neoprene upper paired with a burnt yellow rubber outsole. You can check them out below:

As this is a sneak peek, no release information is available at this stage, though we can expect to see the sneakers first on the Australian Nike SNKRS site. Stay tuned for further updates.
With the Adapt BBs originally retailing for US$350, we're expecting to see a similarly hefty price tag attached to the Auto Max Adapt LE 01s. Given the flexible nature of the shoe though, they're probably worth the cost if you're a serious basketball player or avid sneaker collector.
