Self-tying shoes are here – level 1

23-03-2016 07:00

Nike introduces new shoes. These shoes are special. You do not have to tie these shoes. They do it for you. They are self-tying. You just put the shoes on. They do everything else.

We do not know the price of these shoes. However, they look like they are from the future.

There is a battery in the shoes. It lasts for two weeks.

Difficult words: introduce (to show to people for the first time), tie (when you tie your shoes, you get down to prepare the shoes for walking), last (to have power).

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

Do you want self-tying shoes?
