I saw this today and flipped out!

Nike has showed the world its long-awaited sneaker with self-tying "adaptive" laces.

It's called the HyperAdapt 1.0, and Nike CEO Mark Parker introduced it at the Nike Innovation 2016 event in New York City this week. 

How does a sneaker tie itself? Duh! 


"When you step in, your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten. Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it's perfect." 

That was how Nike senior innovator Tiffany Beers explained it in a video I will post down below.

The technology has been in the works since 2013, and it's based on what went into the Nike MAG -- a replica of Marty McFly's self-lacing sneakers in "Back to the Future" that Nike made last year.

How much will it cost you ask???!?!?!?!? Nike did not have pricing information available about the HyperAdapt 1.0. That means it will cost a small fortune! HA!
