The long awaited power lacing sneakers we've been waiting for since Marty threw them on in Back to the Future II are almost here. Nike has announced the official release of the HyperAdapt 1.0, the first sneaker to be available to the public with adaptive lacing technology. Just like the Air Mags that Marty wore, once you step into the shoes, your heel hits a sensor and then the laces automatically tighten.

You can also loosen and tighten the laces via two buttons that let you adjust the fit throughout the day. Battery life is rated at about two weeks and charging is done via magnetic attachments that connect to the bottom of the shoe. The HyperAdapt 1.0 will hit retailers on November 28th and Nike will soon release information on how to set an appointment and purchase the shoe in the weeks to come.
