This November 28, the Nike self-lacing trainers will go on sale and everyone is freaking out! The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 shoes started off as a project to commemorate the "Back to the Future" day.

In October 21, 2015, Marty McFly and Doc Brown landed on their DeLorean on "Back to the Future III" and the shoes are inspired by Marty McFly's shoes which he wore in the movie, according to Tech Times.

After the unveiling of HyperAdapt 1.0 last March, the much awaited shoes will be available at the shelves of selected Nike outlet across the United States, International Business Times reports.

"Adaptive fit," is what Nike is calling this self-lacing technology on HyperAdapt 1.0, as reported by Tech Times.

Tiffany Beers, Nike senior innovator said that once someone slips his foot into the shoe, a sensor will be activating the "adaptive fit" technology and two buttons will be located on the side to adjust the tightness of the fit, the news site added.

A combination of sensor, motor, battery and cable system that uses an algorithm to adjust the fitness are what builds the shoes' self-lacing system, Wired reports.

Nylon bands that go through the shoe's tongue and sides are the ones responsible for the lace tightening when the buttons are pressed. A blue light illuminates which indicates the motor of HyperAdapt 1.0 is running. As for the battery of the shoes, it can last for approximately two weeks. But don't worry, the batteries are rechargeable and only requires three-hour charging time, the Wired added.

Not everyone will just be able to walk-in stores and buy a pair of this kick-ass sneakers. According to Tech Times, the Nike will be releasing dates on how to set an appointment to purchase the HyperAdapt 1.0 over the coming weeks.

Buying a self-lacing shoes would probably cost someone top dollar but unfortunately, Nike hasn't revealed the selling price of shoes and people just have to prepare big bucks if people want to get their hands on these.
