Self-tying shoes are here - level 2

Self-tying shoes are here - level 2

23-03-2016 07:00

Nike introduced the very first self-tying shoe. You just take the shoe, put it on, and when your heel is in, the shoe automatically adjusts to a comfortable fit. There are also two more buttons, which let you adjust the fit.

Nike didn’t say how much the shoes are going to cost, but these shoes can really take you to the future. Soon, you may not need to get down to tie your shoe laces.

There is a battery inside the shoe, which will last for around 2 weeks.

Difficult words: self-tying (the shoe ties itself), adjust (to set), laces (the little ropes in your shoe to tighten the shoe).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
