Nike confirmed yesterday (Monday) it will sell its HyperAdapt 1.0 self-lacing shoes on December 1 for $720.
The sneakers, inspired by a pair worn in the film “Back to the Future II,” were originally set for release this month. The self-lacing HyperAdapts will use a magnetic adapter to charge the shoes. The kicks fully recharge after 3 hours and battery life lasts up to two weeks. Button on the tongue of the shoe let the user tighten or loosen the laces.
