The self-lacing sneaker from Back to the Future is real and will go on sale later this year. The Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 does look different than the shoes in the movie, but that is a good thing.

Nike found a way to make a self-lacing sneaker that makes sense as a high-tech sneaker. Nike has already made self-lacing sneakers that look like the ones Marty McFly has worn in Back to the Future II, but these are not for every day use.

The new Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 sneaker features adaptive lacing. A sensor in the heel triggers the lacing to automatically tighten. The wearer can adjust the lacing with buttons while wearing.

The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 is the first step into the future of adaptive performance. It’s currently manual, but it makes feasible to make it an automated, nearly symbiotic relationship between the foot and shoe. The Nike Hyperadapt 2.0 might be able to tighten the laces dynamically throughout a run. This would be incredible. Now finally a self-lacing sneaker is not just cool, but really useful.

“Innovation at Nike is not about dreaming of tomorrow. It’s about accelerating toward it,” says Tinker Hatfield. “We’re able to anticipate the needs of athletes because we know them better than anybody. Sometimes, we deliver a reality before others have even begun to imagine it.”

The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be available ONLY to members of Nike+ beginning Holiday 2016 in three colors. To become a Nike+ member and sign up for notifications about the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 visit Nike.com.
