The sneakers are inspired by Michael J. Fox's famous self-lacers from Back to The Future II and feature an internal cable system made from FlyWire and a pressor sensor in the sole. When the sneaker senses that your foot is in the shoe, the cables tighten based on "an algorithmic pressure equation" (whatever that means…) and the tightness can then be adjusted throughout the day using a pair of buttons by the tongue. LED lights in the heel will also light up when the shoes are tightening.

Of course, like everything these days, the shoes will require charging once every two weeks. The LED lights in the heel will let you know when they need a top up and they'll take about 3 hours to charge.

A price for the HyperAdapt 1.0 is yet to be announced.
