BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Nike is ready to launch the self-lacing sneakers we have all waited for a long time. The HyperAdapt 1.0 will be available from November 28th only in some Nike locations in the United States. Even though the company did not tell the price, we are expecting them to be expensive, having in mind their features.
The self-lacing sneakers were inspired by the shoes worn by Michael J. Fox in the movie Back to The Future II. Each sneaker will have an internal cable system and a pressure sensor. When we wear them, the cable will tighten and this feature can be changed during the day with a pair of buttons near the tongue.
A very interesting thing is that you will have to recharge this shoes. So after you take care of your phone and laptop, do not forget to charge the self-lacing sneakers from Nike too. A charge will last for two weeks and you will have to wait three hours for them to be fully ready to use. The new sneakers from Nike will also light up when they are tightening or when the battery is low. We could say that these shoes are the future and they are different from anything else we have seen.
Nike had this idea for some years. They managed to do, at first, a pair that was not functional. However, they did their best and last year, Tinker Hatfield, a designer from Nike, was able to make them work. The company worked hard to make it possible for all people to use these sneakers and it seems that now we have only one month to wait.
Nike is one of the most popular developers of footwear and accessories in the whole world. It has thousands of employees in the whole world and it is valued at more than 19 billion dollars. This makes Nike the most valuable company among sports brands. We are expecting this self-lacing shoes to be really popular, even though they could be too expensive for most people.
Nike is known for its high-quality products and there are thousands of people who buy their sneakers and accessories every month. We can’t wait to try their new product, which seems to be more interesting that everything they have done in the past.
