They may not have made it for 2015, the predicted year in Back To The Future Part 2, but they’re not far off as Nike are officially now releasing self-lacing trainers.
They’re not quite the same as the ones Marty McFly wore in the film but they’re close. They go by the name of HyperAdapt 1.0, a shoe with a sensor inside that automatically tightens the laces when it detects a heel.
Nike did actually make real-life versions of Marty’s but only sold them in very limited amounts. You can see Nike’s official video below on The HyperAdapt 1.0 showing off its cool features:
They will be available in three colours over the Christmas season so have a word with Santa and you might just see them laced up in your stocking.
