Remember in 2015 when Nike released the Back to the Future Air Mags with a self-lacing mechanism, but you couldn't buy them because they weren't available to the public? Well, continue to be disappointed, because we peasants still aren't getting Air Mags. The good news is that the newly revealed HyperAdapt 1.0, which will be releasing in late 2016, feature a self-lacing system. To be honest, I'm not sure if I'm feeling these. I don't think the design is particularly nice. It looks like a boring running shoe trying to be a lifestyle shoe. And for now, it seems like a self-lacing system, while cool, is still a gimmick. It was an amazing add-on for the Air Mags, but that's because it was a callback to Back to the Future, not because it was a useful feature. I don't know about you, but I only end up retying my shoes on the rare occasion they come untied. Are you feeling these or self-lacing sneakers in general? Hit up the comments and let us know!
