The sneakers feature design and construction improvements from the original Nike Adapt BB. including more cushioning and a more detailed exterior design.

The shoe’s self-lacing technology can be controlled by a button on the shoe or via smartphone.

“Simply put, the experience of slipping into the shoe, pressing a button, hearing the whirr of the power-lacing engine and sensing an unparalleled fit is like stepping into a time machine,” Nike wrote in a blog post . “The refining of fit continues in the Nike Adapt BB 2.0, evolving the design principles of its predecessor to improve on-court play, while retaining the spirit of the tech’s underlying magic: the thrill of a glimpse into the future.”

StockX and GOAT did not immediately return Business Insider’s request for comment.
