Nike’s HyperAdapt 1.0 smart sneakers

Remember when tying your shoes was a rite of passage for your children, your students or you? Well, Nike will be selling sneakers in November that make that simple action obsolete.

Their self-lacing  sneakers are reminiscent of the pair worn by Marty McFly in the iconic movie, Back To the Future. The shoes electronically sense whether the laces need to be tightened or loosened providing an “Adaptive Fit.”

The sole of the HyperAdapt 1.0 shoes feature a lit sole that indicates if you are “powered up.” Does this mean that we will charge our sneakers next to our phones? Nike, can you give us some jet propulsion next?
