You Can Finally Buy Nike’s ‘Back to the Future’ Sneakers

The light up, self-lacing sneakers Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II are finally in stores.

The HyperAdapt 1.0 shoes, as they’re formally known, officially went on sale on Monday, CNBC reports. Nike (NKE) describes the sneakers as the “first step into the future of adaptive performance.” A pair of these futuristic sneakers retails for $720.

The shoes use cables and pressure sensors to sense how tightly they need to be laced without the wearer having to tighten or loosen them themselves, though there are buttons that allow you to adjust the fit. LED lights on the soles don’t just mimic the look Marty McFly sported in the movie, but they also serve as battery level indicators.


The HyperAdapt 1.0 shoes are based off of the once-fictional invention imagined in the 1989 movie Back to the Future II. Michael J. Fox, who played Marty McFly, was the first to get a pair. Nike presented them to the actor on Oct. 21, 2015—the date that his character traveled to in the movie.
