This is a Nike basketball hightop with auto lacing and blinky lights. I am almost certain that with battery tech improving you will see many more shoes with lights, screens and auto lacing features. You charge this shoe by placing it on an induction pad in your closet. It is influenced by Nike’s Yeezy 1 sneaker. So by proxy it has lots of Robotech influences. These remind me of being a kid and watching anime on my neighbors satellite dish wishing I could afford Jordans. It is odd how Nike makes more money selling retros – it is empirical evidence that they have traveled down the wrong design roads.
