This Year, You’re Going “Back To The Future” With Self-Lacing Nike Sneakers!

In the old days, tying your shoelaces was a rite of passage for kids. In the future, it might not be a required skill after all. This year, Nike plans to eliminate the need to arrange your shoes and laces with an automatic system for sneakers that gives a nod to Back to the Future II.

Nike actually gave Michael J. Fox a pair of Air Mags last year, but it wasn’t quite ready to put them on the shelves for public consumption. Now, the company is finally giving us a look at HyperAdapt 1.0, a pair of sneakers with embedded sensors and buttons that control the tightness of the shoe.

“The shoe provides precise, consistent, personalized lockdown that can be manually adjusted on the go”, writes Nike in the description of their video above, meaning the moment your heel hits a sensor, it automatically tightens the laces. You can adjust the fit from a couple of buttons positioned on either side of the sneakers.

You will be able to buy your first pair this year, if you’re a member of the company’s fitness portal, Nike+. HyperAdapt 1.0 will come in 3 colors in holiday season and their designer, Tinker Hatfield, promises future shoes that will sense when you need a bit of adjustment without your intervention!
