Nike's Self-Tying Trainers Finally Have A Release Date

​They're not the Air MAGs, though, unfortunately

Since Marty McFly had his shoes tied by electro magnets and raw science (or something like that) in Back to the Future, we've all dreamed of self-tying trainers and now, thanks to the big brains at Nike, we can all get in on some lazy laceless action.

Releasing on 28 November, the Hyper Adapt 1.0 uses a pressure sensor, a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery, a lightweight micromotor, and a cable system to tighten them (they also light up, which is obviously a very big selling point.)

"When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten," explains Tiffany Beers, Senior Innovator, NIKE, Inc., and the project's technical lead.

"Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it's perfect."

So they're not completely self-tying like the Air MAGs from BTTF, but they're close enough in our book.

Take a look at how they work in Nike's video below.
