If you have a sneaker lover in your family, it’s safe to say you now know what to get them for Christmas. In case you missed it, Nike announced that their “Back to the Future II” self-lacing shoes, known as the HyperAdapt 1.0, will hit stores on November 28th, just in time for the holiday season.
The shoes are battery powered and get tighter when your foot sets off a pressure sensor in the sole, with the fit being adjusted by two buttons in the front. Since it runs on a battery, the shoe will need to be charged, and will take about three hours to do so, but the battery is supposed to last about two weeks.
Of course, getting your hands on a pair may not exactly be easy. According to a tweet from the company, the shoes will only be available in “select Nike retail locations,” and those wanting them need to make “appointments to experience and purchase” the sneaks. As for how much the sneakers will cost, Nike isn’t saying, although “Wired,” which got a sneak peak at the shoe, says they’ll likely have a “high price tag.” Check out “Wired’s” video demonstration of the sneaker to the right.
