T-Mac Hug is a Basketball shoe designed with Hugs Systems Technology.
Hug is a laceless compression closure system that, with the flip of a lever, locks your foot into a zone of total comfort, security and control. The inspiration behind Hug comes from the High-Tech Downhill Ski Boots.
It features a revolutionary closure system that locks the foot securely in place, providing superior comfort and fit. The Hug element fits over the top area of the foot. This is attached to the rear of the shoe by cables which put the element under tension, which is maintained by a closure device on the heel counter. The closure device, a slider/ lever system is used to control the fit. Turning the adjustment wheel moves the slider up and down on the thread, giving the athlete the most precise fit possible.
