LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – Nike unveiled it’s first power-lacing sneaker Wednesday at a media event in New York.
The futuristic shoes are called HyperAdapt 1.0, and have a very close resemblance to the high-top sneakers Marty McFly wore in “Back To The Future.” The shoes are set to hit stores this upcoming Holiday season, and no determined price for the shoes have been released.
Nike’s vice president of designed explained that the shoes don’t use a traditional lacing system, but rather a battery powered series of pulleys that cinch the throat of the shoe.

The HyperAdapt 1.0 will run on a battery that will last for up to two weeks before needing to be charged.
