Those nifty auto-lacing Nike Air Mags that Marty McFly sports during his trip to futuristic Hill Valley will apparently be on your local shelves soon, no vehicular chrono-jumps required. The shoe company filed a patent for the design last year, and now it would appear they have made it through production and are nearly ready for all you McFlys.
Yep, this is an announcement of Nike Air Mag shoes, aka the self-lacing sneakers seen in Back to the Future II. (Looks like we don’t have to wait until 2015 for those, as the film prophesied.) Nike patented the self-lacing design last year and now it looks like the shoes are ready for market. Marshall’s most recent tweet says “Going to need a lot of hover boards” and points to the video embedded below. Unless you’ve lived the past twenty-two years coveting these shoes, you can relax now.
A peek into the closet, AFTER THE JUMP...
