The Wildcats will be the first collegiate team to wear them. If you need a refresher, these are a new type of shoe that Nike recently unveiled. You tighten the laces via an app on your phone, and the purpose is to give players a much more smoother fitting shoe, as shoe sizes do tend to fluctuate a small bit during a game.
It’s unclear if all of the Wildcats are wearing them or if it’s a select group of players.
This comes just a few weeks after former Wildcat and current Kings guard De’Aaron Fox was one of the few basketball players marketing the new shoes and presumably Fox may have hooked the Wildcats basketball team up with the new Adapt’s:
The shoes aren’t available to the public until February 17th and they will cost you a cool $350. It will be interesting to see if these have any kind of affect on tonight’s game.
