Return back to the future with Nike's new self-lacing shoes

Next up? Hopefully Marty's self-drying jacket.

Ever since Marty McFly debuted Nike's self-lacing shoes in Back To The Future 2, sneakerheads worldwide have been fanging for self-tieing shoes for years, only to be disappointed with hoaxes and cancellations across the past 15 years. After announcing last year that they have developed power-lacing shoes (a pair was reportedly given to McFly's IRL actor, Michael J Fox), Nike has proclaimed that this year will see the first ever, mass-released, power-lacing shoes. Titled the Nike Hyperadapt 1.0, Nike senior innovator Tiffany Beers explained that the shoes work by a sensor located on the heel, which would automatically tighten the 'laces' once you step in, as well as the power to adjust the power-laces through a button on the side of the shoe. Set to drop before Christmas this year, not many other details surrounding the shoes have been announced, but you could definitely bet the price range would be somewhere in-between e-bay Yeezy Boosts and several non-vital organs. Check out the promo video for the shoe below, as well as a couple of sweet flicks that came with the announcement.
