The future of footwear is now the present, and there's no better way to usher in 2020 than with a rumored look at Nike Basketball's next auto-lacing performance sneaker, the Adapt BB 2.

Leaked shots give us a detailed view of the new silhouette, which carries forth quite a few of its predecessor's design language and mixes in some new elements. A blend of materials, including open-hole mesh appear on the upper, along with gloss-finished hardware along the light indicator panel and heel. Detailing along the midsole confirms the addition of forefoot Zoom Turbo cushioning, which is highlighted in bright red.

As of now, a release date for the Adapt BB 2 hasn't been announced, but the information could come down soon. The original Adapt BB was introduced last January and launched in February—the sequel could very well follow the same timeline. Stick with Sole Collector for updates moving forward.

UPDATE (01/20): Today, Memphis Grizzlies' Ja Morant officially debuts what's expected to be the upcoming Nike Adapt BB 2.0 on-court while facing off against the New Orleans Pelicans. As of now, an official release date has yet to be announced but check back soon for updates.

UPDATE (01/21): Nike has officially announced the release of the upcoming Adapt BB 2.0 as well as breaking down the tech behind the new power-lacing basketball shoe. The upper has been revamped by integrating a stretchable ballistic mesh for easier access. For additional responsiveness on the court, an Air Zoom Turbo cushioning unit has been added into the forefoot of the midsole similar to the unit in Kyrie Irving's signature line. The Nike Adapt 2.0 will release exclusively in Chicago on Feb. 13 for the NBA All-Star Weekend followed by a global release on Feb. 16.
