“For every runner, finding sneakers that fit so perfectly you never have to think about adjusting is pretty much the Holy Grail,” reports Shape magazine, continuing, “In a quest to find that perfect fit (and get rid of a needless distraction), Nike has simply removed shoelaces from the equation.”

The story adds, “Meet the brand-new Nike Hyperadapt 1.0, a sneaker that “laces up” with sensors that find the perfect customized tension for your feet….’When you step [into the shoe], your heel will hit a sensor and the system will automatically tighten,’ explained Tiffany Beers, Senior Innovator for Nike and the project’s technical lead. ‘Then there are two buttons on the side to tighten and loosen. You can adjust it until it’s perfect.’”
