Self-Lacing Air Jordan Shoes Are Coming in December
This isn't the first time we've seen this self-lacing technology from Nike, but it might be the coolest.
It's so surreal that the self-lacing shoes that made our chins drop when Michael J. Fox put them on in the film Back to the Future Part II are something that exists, now. Marty McFly's self-lacing Nikes hit the big screen over 30 years ago.
Revolutionary was the word used to describe the HyperAdapt 1.0, Nike's first self-lacing shoe, that debuted four years ago.
The 25th Anniversary of the Nike Air Jordan XI is being celebrated by introducing, the Air Jordan XI Adapt with self-lacing technology. These new shoes also change color and feature flashing lights on the sides. They will be on store shelves on December 30.
Twenty-five years after original sketches of Tinker Hatfield’s Air Jordan XI design illuminated his intent to make a laceless shoe, Jordan Brand incorporates Nike Adapt power lacing technology into one of its most iconic models while remaining complementary to the original silhouette.

It's not known what these new Air Jordans will cost, but the Nike Adapt BB that were released a year ago and use the same technology, had a $350 price tag, according to Fox 32 Chicago.
