If you are really into the sneaker world, you surely may know about the OG Nike Air Mag. Since Nike is planning to release the new Nike Adapt Huarache soon, you should know about the past of it. So here it goes. Nike Air Mag was first introduced to the world as a concept shoe which got its hype due to its appearance in the superhit movie “Back To The Future”.

They were a huge deal back then. But later after more than 2 decades, Nike officially released them with 1st time showcasing the self-lacing technology to the world but the price was out of reach. Nike also tried to make this technology accessible by releasing two shoes i,e, Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 & Nike Adapt BB but both of them were a bit ugly as I think so.

To overcome these cons, Nike is planning to release its Nike Adapt Huarache equipped with the Nike FitAdapt technology. So let’s just dive into the details of the latest Nike Adapt Huarache.
