Nike has finally realized its long-standing idea - to release a model of sneakers with automatic lacing, by analogy with the shoes from the futuristic movie "Back to the Future". The HyperAdapt 1.0 model was announced in March 2016 and will soon go on sale, primarily in the brand's stores in the US.
The new Nike's lacing system works as follows: when the foot hits the shoe, the sensor fires and the lacing automatically tightens. The user can fix the lacing tension using the buttons located on the side.
For the presentation of its futuristic model, Nike selected the Portuguese footballer playing for the Spanish club Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo.
