Future is now: Nike's next self-lacing shoe hitting shelves

In this Feb. 7, 2019, photo, Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma stands on the court during an NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston. He is wearing Nike's latest performance basketball shoes, which from concept to reality, took about three years to put together. Or 30 years, depending on how you count. The Nike Adapt BB _ a self-lacing smart shoe that can be controlled by a smartphone _ gets released to the public on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2019, a date that just happens to coincide with the NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte. It has a motor embedded within the shoe, and a hefty $350 price tag. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)
