We in 2016 still don’t have flying cars yet, but Back to the Future has successfully predicted something other than Donald Trump.

After giving away special edition MAG sneakers — modeled after the pair of self-lacing shoes worn by Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future Part IIin a raffle for Fox’s foundation fighting Parkinson’s disease, Nike (nke) will be releasing mass-produced sneakers that tie themselves up in select stores in December, Mashable reports.

The Nike HyperAdapt comes with cables and pressure sensors that would adjust its laces to fit the wearer’s feet, with the option to adjust tightness by pressing buttons near the tongue. Apart from being able to lace themselves, these sneakers also come with LED lights on the soles that are not only cool, but also act as battery level indicators. The built-in lithium-ion batteries should last two weeks after a full, three-hour charge via a wireless charging dock, the report says.

Nike confirmed to Mashable that the HyperAdapt will be on sale Dec. 1, just in time for the holiday shopping season. (Previous reporting had suggested a Nov. 28 release date.) And they won’t cost any potential buyer $1,000 a pair, as might be suggested in some rumors.

These self-lacing sneakers will instead come with a $720 price tag, a Nike spokesperson told Mashable.

The sneakers were first announced by Nike in March, when Fortune had a chance to try them on.
