Nike has finally announced a release date for their highly anticipated self-lacing sneakers inspired by the shoes worn by Michael J. Fox in Back to The Future II.
Starting on the 28th of November, select Nike locations across the US will offer the coveted shoe.
We will, of course, have that list for you as soon as it’s available.
Pricing is still unknown, but word in these sneaker streets is you can expect a hefty price tag.
Each shoe has an internal cable system made from fishing line and a pressure sensor in the sole. When you put your foot in, the cables tighten based on “an algorithmic pressure equation,” and this fit can be adjusted throughout the day with a pair of buttons near the tongue.
LEDs in the heel light up when the shoes are tightening and when it’s on low battery. It takes three hours for a full charge and each charge last about two weeks, with Nike providing a magnetic clip-on charger similar to that used by Apple for the Apple Watch.
