Nike unveiled the self lacing kicks - nicknamed E.A.R.L. - at an innovation event in New York City. Nike brought me there to experience it all. There was even a late night workout with celebrity Kevin Hart.

Also unveiled - a new Nike+ app that is launching later this summer. It will connect you to everything Nike. Sneakerheads will appreciate the "golden ticket" feature that could give you early or guaranteed access to coveted new sneaker styles.

The new Nike app launches this summer and the new self lacing sneakers later this year.

Here's a little slideshow I put together with some highlights from the event.
