Nike Unveils New Self-Tying Shoe, The HyperAdapt 1.0

Now we can ALL be Marty McFly.

U.S. sporting goods giant Nike unveiled Wednesday its first shoe that ties itself, the HyperAdapt 1.0, which will go on sale at the end of 2016.

Sensors at the heel level activate the lacing when a foot slips into the shoe. Two buttons on the side of the shoe can be pressed to loosen or tighten the lacing.

Calling the feature "adaptive lacing," Nike's star designer Tinker Hatfield said at the New York presentation that the company is working on other innovations that will provide automatic adjustments.

In 2015, Nike launched a limited-edition shoe with so-called "power laces" that adapt to the wearer's motion, the Nike Mag, inspired by the film "Back to the Future, Part II."
