De’Aaron Fox debuts Nike’s new self-tying shoes

Yesterday afternoon, former Kentucky star De’Aaron Fox teased a bit of news coming sometime this afternoon involving his partnership with Nike basketball.

The video he shared on Twitter was of him working on his phone, hitting a button, and then freaking out about the results. He also tagged #NikeAdapt at the end of the tweet:

Today, the cat was let out of the bag, as Nike released an ad for their newest shoe, the Nike Adapt BB, a basketball sneakers.

You can find sneakers in different styles and sizes in the market today. And there are specific categories of sneakers for different uses. For example, there are dance sneakers for dancers and sports sneakers for athletes. Due to the high demand for sneakers, a lot of shoe companies are manufacturing specialized shoes for different activities so that everyone could enjoy a smooth ride and give their best in the activity of choice.

Sneakers were referred to as ‘plimsolls’ when they were introduced in the 18th century. People started to call them “sneakers” because they didn’t make much noise when you are using them while walking or even running. These shoes usually have rubber soles which make them quite noiseless. It is very common for every one of us to have at least one pair of sneakers in our shoe collection. Without sneakers, our shoe collection seems to be quite incomplete.Sneakers come in different sizes and shapes. Shoe companies of today develop special types of sneakers for people with flat feet, high arch or high heels. This helps to ensure that everyone could enjoy the same level of comfort and style irrespective of the shape and size of their feet.

Sports sneakers that we find today are designed according to the requirements of every sport. Although sports sneakers do not look very different from regular sneakers from the outside, the interior of these shoes is very different. If you try walking in sports sneakers, you will feel the real difference. Dance sneakers, on the other hand, feel entirely different. So, you have to make sure that you are choosing appropriate sneakers that are made for the activity that you are participating in.

Sneakers usually last longer than normal shoes because they are made to bear wear and tear. However, you must clean your sneakers regularly to make sure that the shoes look fresh and do not develop bad odor. If your sneakers get wet, make sure you dry them in time. Never wear wet sneakers as this may increase the bad odor inside the shoes.

Choosing the right kind of sneakers is also very important to help you avoid injuries during your activities and perform better at sports or dancing. You should also consider your foot type before getting your sneakers. Give consideration to the type of your to avoid rolling inward or outwards later. Know what you want to do with your shoes and buy a pair of sneakers that is appropriate for your purpose.
By keeping these things in mine, you can find the best pair of sneakers for yourself. You can find good varieties of sneakers in normal shoes stores and in online shoe stores. Most people find it cost effective to buy shoes from online stores.

Have a look at different types of sneakers designer shoes.

Boston Celtics star forward Jayson Tatum was the athlete featured in the promo:

Tatum, a fellow Nike athlete, will reportedly wear the Nike Adapt BB tomorrow evening in their game against the Toronto Raptors.

Though it hasn’t been confirmed quite yet, Fox is also expected to wear the Back to the Future-esque self-tying shoes in an upcoming game soon.

He sported them in an ad released this afternoon:

Nike released official limited edition Back to the Future Nike Mags back in 2016, with just 89 pairs made available to be raffled off with proceeds going to the Michael J. Park Foundation‘s research on Parkinson’s disease.

This is what those looked like:

    I can’t wait for my friends to have these so I can steal their phone while their playing and untie their shoes as they run!

      Another solid example of amazing writing and zero editing. Mixing up the last name of a person with what they died from.
