Nike unveils shoes that can lace using an app


(WFLA/CNN Newsource) โ€“ Hoverboards may not be a reality yet, but if youโ€™ve also wanted a pair of self-lacing shoes since seeing โ€œBack to the Future 2,โ€ your luck is about to get better.

Nike unveiled its newest self-lacing technology Tuesday.

Called โ€œNike Adapt BB,โ€ the self-lacing basketball shoe is controlled by an app.

Itโ€™s part of a product family called โ€œFit-Adapt,โ€ which feature gear that uses apps and firmware that can be continually updated.

Jayson Taum of the Boston Celtics will wear the shoes at an NBA game Wednesday night.
Nike has bigger plans.

Once the kinks are ironed out, the company plans to expand Fit-Adapt into other sports and lifestyle products.

If all this seems like dรฉjร  vu, you may be remembering when Nike made self-lacing shoes modeled after the ones in โ€œBack to the Future 2โ€ in 2016.

Those special edition shoes were never sold and only 89 pairs were given away in a lottery.

The company also sells a self-lacing shoe called โ€œHyper-Adapt,โ€ which cannot be updated and does not use an app.
