Nike has just announced that its newest line of shoes, the self-lacing HyperAdapt series of footwear, will go on sale this holiday season, on November 28th! The shoes have been in the works for years, with the original prototypes dating back to 2011, and are finally ready to hit retail. The HyperAdapts, which will have to be charged like other electronic devices, will have internal cables and pressure sensors built into the shoe itself, sensing when the shoe is placed on a foot. The shoe will then self-tighten its laces, which can be adjusted using buttons on the shoe for a comfortable fit. The HyperAdapt shoes will be able to function for two weeks on a single charge, and will also feature built-in LED lights that will let users know when the shoe is tightening or when it is low on batteries. While there is no official price tag for these shoes yet, the HyperAdapts will surely be a popular collector’s item this holiday season.
