It's been roughly three decades since Robert Zemeckis' "Back to the Future" hit theaters back in 1985, but we're finally about to have the ability to get our hands on a pair of sneakers the great Marty McFly would be proud of.
That's right, Marty. The future is now!
Apparently, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be available initially through a limited release because, well, there are only so many self-lacing sneakers to go around right now, I guess.
As you can see in the video above, these Nike kicks are very much the real deal.
The HyperAdapt 1.0 can provide users with different levels of tightness, and a three-hour charge of the sneakers will reportedly provide about two weeks worth of self-lacing power.
But how much do these babies cost? Name your price, Nike! I'll sell a kidney to get my hands on Marty McFly's shoes!
Well, a kidney may not be enough. Nike reportedly hasn't revealed a price yet for the HyperAdapts, which only fuels the excitement surrounding the sneakers.
Speaking on Nike's latest innovation, Senior Innovator Tiffany Beers said,
The HyperAdapt is a myth turned into reality. It auto-laces. It takes that dream that was seen in a movie years ago and makes it a reality that people can actually feel. It's so cool!
Nike's VP for Design and Special Projects, Tinker Hatfield, added,
This shoe, it becomes alive. It shapes to your foot. It's a really new experience. It's the future.
You're telling me, Tinker! These sneakers are the coolest thing I've seen in a long, long time. Forget about those Nike sneakers that look like they have socks built into them.
I want the HyperAdapts.
I don't care what I have to do to get a pair of these, I'm going to make it my goal before the end of 2016 to do so.
