Clothing firm Nike have announced their self-lacing shoes will go on sale from December 1st.

The HyperAdapt 1.0 features what the company calls "adaptive lacing".

The shoe translates research in digital, electrical and mechanical engineering - and was made famous by 1989's 'Back to the Future Part II':

The shoes in black and white, and also blue lagoon, will be available at the Nike Soho store and the Nike ClubHouse in New York.

The company says consumers can learn about and trial the product here.

But everything comes at a price - the shoes will retail at US$720 (€672) per pair.

The company also says a small group of Nike app users will have limited early access on November 28th.

While later in December, the HyperAdapt 1.0 will become available through the Nike app and select locations in the US.

No released date for Ireland has been announced.
