If you can't wait to buy a pair of Nike's (NKE) new $720 self-tying sneakers, best pick up a plane ticket to New York City.
Nike's Hyperadapt 1 sneakers have gone on sale this week at two stores in New York City's Soho area. Some Nike Plus app users are also being given offers to buy the shoe through the app, which judging by several Instragram photos (below) is something being taken advantage of quickly. The innovative new shoes are expected to arrive at more stores on Dec. 1.
Nike first showed off its Hyperadapt sneakers in March. The sneakers feature what Nike calls "adaptive lacing" technology, which can automatically tweak the snugness of the shoe. There are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen the laces. Say goodbye to tripping over your shoelaces.
