High-res version

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

: 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.”

As seen in the movie:
