Nike connects Siri to let new shoe owners loosen their laces with just their voice.

The company's latest version of futuristic portable technology is embedded in its updated Huaraches trainers.

Users can use Apple's virtual assistant, & # 39; Siri, release my shoes & # 39; via the Apple Watch or iPhone, via the Nike Adapt app.

The FitAdapt lacing system from Nike uses a mid-foot motor to perform the lace-up process for wearers, which was previously used on other trainers such as the Nike Adapt BB.

HOW DO THE & # 39; POWER LACES & # 39; FROM NIKE

Nike launched its original & # 39; Back to the Future & # 39; sneakers with & # 39; power laces & # 39; operated from a telephone in January

When you step into the Nike Adapt BB, a modified motor and gear train detects the tension the foot needs and adjusts accordingly to keep the foot tight.

The tensile strength of the lacing under the foot is able to pull 32 pounds of force (roughly equivalent to that of a standard parachute cord) to secure the foot.

The shoes must be charged and each pair is supplied with a charging mat.

Nike said: & # 39; The latest version of FitAdapt provides a wider range of personal preferences in the midst of different environments and situations – a major revolution considering the multifunctional nature of contemporary lifestyle shoes. & # 39;

With the accompanying app, people can also adjust the color of LED lights on the bottom of the shoe, with the option to choose preset modes or create a custom fit and light combinations.

The price has yet to be confirmed, but the Nike Adapt BB trainers with similar technology can be purchased for more than £ 300 ($ 350).

The Adapt Huaraches trainers are available from September 13 at selected stores and via the SNEAKRS app.

Nike Adapt BB is specially designed for basketball and is automatically made tighter or looser with the push of a button on the shoes themselves or via a smartphone.

Users can program various settings that determine how the laces are fastened, such as a setting for playing a basketball game and a setting for regular lounging.

The shoes must be charged and each pair is supplied with a charging mat.

During Back to the 1989 film Future Part II, Marty travels to October 21, 2015 and puts on a pair of Nike High Tops that automatically tighten and adjust to his feet – using so-called power laces.

A photo of the 54-year-old actor who tried the first pair of the Back to the Future-inspired sneakers was shared on Twitter by the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson Research.

Nike released a limited range of McFly & # 39; s Nike MAG & # 39; s with manual laces in 2011, and earlier in 2015 – the year in which Back To the Future II was used, Tinker revealed that the power laces would arrive soon afterwards.
