With smart sneakers, privacy risks take a great leap
#1
Quote:I'm dribbling a basketball in one hand, with a phone in the other, adjusting the tightness on a pair of Nike's Bluetooth-connected self-tying Adapt BB sneakers on my feet.

The futuristic shoes, which go on sale for $350 on Feb. 17, alternate between boa constrictor-tight and comfy slipper loose as I toggle through the app like a child flicking a light switch for the first time. 

 Goofing around, I try to grab my colleague's phone so I could suffocate him via sneakers while we run around the basketball court at Nike's headquarters in New York. All of a sudden, he wasn't trying to just play defense in basketball; he had to guard his phone too.

Athletic apparel companies like Nike, Under Armour and Puma may find themselves similarly on the defensive as they lead the charge to infuse technology in their sneakers. After all, the smarter the object, the more likely it is to be hacked. It's a worrisome trend that industries are dealing with as they wrestle between added convenience and protecting your privacy.
