Nike Finally Introduces Self-Lacing Shoes from Back To The Future II – UPDATED
Posted on September 8, 2011
Great Scott! They’re finally here, the shoes Marty McFly wears in Back To The Future II when he travels to the year 2015 and discovers the self-lacing Nike Air Mag shoes. I’ve been waiting 21 years for these!
This news originated on Frank Marshall’s (producer on the BTTF-movies) twitter account when he teased of “S0mething big coming. Can’t say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny.” #BTTF“
UPDATE #3: Now it seems that the shoes can be bought from an auction at Ebay supporting the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
“Update #2: 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.”
