We recently spoke about these shoes in 2019. The excitement was kinda big. Well, there were some issues with the shoe. Now according to Nike, they have redesigned the shroud which will make it easier to put on and take off. The forefoot has an Air Zoom Turbo Bag that supposedly adds an extra bounce to it. On top of that, they have reworked the mid-sole to improve transitioning from heel to toe, making it easier for athletes.

February 14, 2020 – The colorway of the Nike Adapt BB 2.0 was debuted by Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant February 14 during 2020 NBA Rising Stars. As a Gamer Exclusive, the shoe will feature virtually inside NBA 2K20 and will unlock for physical purchase within the game in the coming weeks.

Similarly to the first model, they will connect to your phone through Bluetooth via an app. This allows for numerous amount of customization’s along with updates to add more [potential features in the future. They will need to be charged every two weeks and can be done on a wireless mat. In a YouTube video by Weartesters, they showed off the shoes. They claimed that even though this year’s shoes are a bit heavier, weighing in at 19.6 oz, they are way more comfortable than it predecessor. What I agree with them is the price, among other things. At a $400 price point, it can be perceived as being overpriced. The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 went on sale on with its OG” colorway via Nike.com and other retailers on February 16th at 10 AM ET, for $400.

“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,” Nike said in a blog post.
