Nike Self-Lacing Shoes Are Finally Here

Nike just announced a shoe that can lace itself. “Back to the future” fans have been waiting for this moment for years. The NIKE HYPERADAPT 1.0 uses battery-powered mechanical pulleys to lace itself. When you step in, a sensor in the heel automatically tightens the laces. There are also two buttons on the side to adjust the fit. This means you’ll have to charge your shoes about every two weeks.The shoemaker has shown off concepts for “POWERED-LACING” shoes before. But this is the first pair it plans to put on the market. There are manual controls on the side of the shoe to tighten or loosen the laces. Eventually, the company wants the shoe to be able to adjust itself. Nike says it will start selling sometime around the holidays. It has yet to reveal a price. And they will be available to NIKE+ members at the end of 2016.
