Storytelling Through Design: Nike's Tinker Hatfield with Scott Dadich FILLING
Limited Capacity filling up

Nike's Tinker Hatfield—one of the world's most celebrated shoe designers and the creator of Marty McFly's famous self-lacing sneakers in Back to the Future—will join design guru (and former WIRED editor-in-chief) Scott Dadich for a wide-ranging conversation on Hatfield's illustrious career and the inspirations for his barrier-breaking designs. Plus, you'll get a look at Nike's first step in the revolution of adaptive footwear - the HyperAdapt 1.0: a real-life self-lacing, battery-powered shoe that adjusts its fit based on an algorithmic pressure equation.
Following the onstage conversation, Tinker Hatfield will sign sneakers in the 2nd Floor Lounge, just outside of the auditorium. Bring your favorite pair along for an autograph!
