Nike’s Self-Lacing Sneakers Reportedly Had Some Issues After The Update

Of course, even when Nike can’t fix this issue, its consumers can still use the Adapt BB self-lacing sneakers as other common pairs of shoes.

A few users, who bought Nike’s $350 self-lacing sneakers, have reported some issues on this latest product. The Google Play Store has recently recorded users’ feedbacks saying that their shoes were breaking when they updated the firmware on the Android platform.

The sneakers have just come to the public on February 17, and right after that, the developers introduced the update for their firmware. Everything seemed to be perfect; until the update ruined the game. The sneakers didn’t pair with the application.

According to many reviews, when the users tried to connect the application with their sneakers, it will display a message showing that the shoes were in connection; however, the left shoe didn’t have any response.

Here is one review from Steve Craig, "App will only sync with left shoe and then fail every time."

Startlingly, most of the users didn’t have to face this issue when running the app version on the iOS platform, while some confirmed it still occurred even when their devices were iPhones.

Some said resetting their smartphones would enable the self-lacing sneakers to connect with the application.

The representative of the footwear manufacturing company has made no instant comment on what’s happing on the smart sneakers.

When producing the Adapt BB self-lacing sneakers, Nike wanted to focus more on its consumers. As a piece of evidence, the model owns two outstanding characteristics, including a soft price and especially suitable for one of the most favourite sports in the US: basketball.

Nike has clearly gained some certain successes. Simeon Siegel, an analyst at Instinet, revealed that the sneakers have been almost entirely out of stock.

He said to investors in a note, "The sneaker retails for $350, and we highlight that since its Sunday 10 a.m. release through late morning on Tuesday, [resale platform] StockX had recorded 1,600 resales for an average price of $469, a testament to the release's popularity and limited availability."

He further said, "This is [Nike's] more mainstream version of its new self-lacing, smart adaptive footwear technology, and we will be on the lookout for potential future launches that may use such technology in the future."

Of course, even when Nike can’t fix this issue, its consumers can still use the Adapt BB self-lacing sneakers as other common pairs of shoes.
