After going for gold with a NBA 2K20-exclusive “Winner’s Circle” GE, Nike‘s Adapt BB 2.0 is back in a high-flying “Astronomy Blue” colorway. With chilly blue shades and splattered prints aplenty, the “Astronomy Blue” is a technologically advanced Nike Basketball style that’s perfect for summer hoops.

Uppers take on the “Astronomy Blue” hue that gives this Adapt BB its name. A slightly darker iteration of royal blue, it covers the mesh forefoot and midfoot plus the leather collar and sculpted plastic heel. A touch of tonal texture is provided by the raised Swoosh that swoops across the top of the foot. A small, inverted grey Swoosh graces the medial midfoot. Touches of “Royal Pulse” appear on the toebox and the power lacing system’s anchors, and are also splattered across the heel.

This lacing system is mostly concealed under a midfoot sheath, but uses high-tensile black threads to provide a customizable fit, adjustable from the wearer’s iPhone or Android device as well as the buttons on the midsole. These midsole buttons denote the placement of the small, rechargeable motor that powers the fit system, proffer a variety of color options and are surrounded by grey EVA foam with more blue speckles.

Outsoles are translucent — save for a large piece of solid blue rubber that encases the forefoot’s ZoomX unit — and complete the look with an abstract blue pattern. The shoes are packaged with a charging pad as well, ensuring that your motor never runs dry.

The Nike Adapt BB 2.0 “Astronomy Blue” is available now via Nike Japan. Retail is set at $400 USD, and a US release will likely follow in the coming weeks.

Looking back to classic hoop kicks, a game-worn pair of Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 1 injury PE is up for auction, with a starting bid of $100,000 USD.
