Doncic finished with 25 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists wearing the new self-lacing sneaker.

The Nike Adapt BB was the second multipurpose performance shoe to feature power lacing after the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 released in 2016.

According to Nike, a custom motor and gear train senses the foot and the shoe itself will adjust to create a snug fit.

Using Nike’s FitAdapt tech, the user can now have full control of the shoe through manual touch or by using an app that can adjust both shoes.
