Dreaming of rocking Nike's first self-lacing shoe, the HyperAdapt 1.0, was fun while it lasted. Ever since its debut back in March at Nike's Global Innovation Summit, sneakerheads were drooling at the chance to don what is essentially a training shoe that adapts to your foot and ties itself to your liking. That is, until they found out how much it's going to cost.
Self-lacing technology apparently doesn't come cheap. According to Sole Collector, the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be released in super limited quantities—and it's going to cost a cool $720 to purchase. So while the shoe, which officially drops on Dec. 1, might be on your Christmas list, don't expect your parents to cop it for you—or for the shoe to last at retail that long. Despite it's high price tag, it will doubtlessly sell out within minutes.
Self-lacing technology is certainly cool. Hopefully future releases will allow normal folks to have a shot at buying it.
