Nike's self-lacing shoes going on sale Nov. 28

Nike to launch self-lacing shoes Nov. 28

One of the most highly anticipated shoe launches of the year now has a release date.

Nike's self-lacing HyperAdapt 1.0 sneaker will hit shelves in select U.S. stores Nov. 28, the Monday after Thanksgiving, according to a Tweet by Nike spokeswoman Heidi Burgett.

Details about the futuristic sneakers' price and how to schedule an appointment will be released in coming weeks, spokesman Matthew Kneller told CNBC. The product will be available exclusively for members of its Nike+ loyalty program.


Nike first announced the HyperAdapt 1.0 at its March innovation summit, saying it would be available for the holidays. At that time, CEO Mark Parker told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" that the shoe had been in the making for roughly 30 years, since the concept was shown on screen in 1989's "Back to the Future II."

Fans of the movie have been clamoring to get their hands on Nike's version since the shoe was introduced.
