Nike will release a self-lacing sneaker, the "Back to the Future II" HyperAdapt 1.0, on Nov. 28.
Nike’s PR director, Heidi Burgett, announced the release date on Twitter, saying that the shoe will be available at “select Nike retail locations.”
While the cost of the shoe remains to be seen, they’re expected to have a pretty high price tag attached to them, according to Wired.
The HyperAdapt is a battery-powered shoe and will require charging. Charging the sneaker will be done by a magnetic adapter, and the shoe will have to be charged for at least three hours before being fully charged, USA Today noted. Nike expects the battery to last about two weeks between charges.
The laces are adjusted by pressing buttons located near the tongue of the sneaker. Lights on the side of the shoe indicate how much battery is remaining, with blue representing a full charge, yellow signaling a few more days of battery life left, and red meaning that you should charge the sneaker “right away,” Tiffany Beers, a senior innovator at Nike said in a video about the shoe posted on YouTube.
