Nike is apparently ready to release Self Lacing Nike Mag inspired by Back to the Future II from the 80s.
Remember the movie franchise Back to the Future from the 80s? In Back to the Future II, Marty McFly (Micheal J. Fox) got a pair of self lacing Nike Air Mag. The movie promised these to be on the market in 2015. It looks like Nike is ahead of schedule and will unveil the Nike Air Mag already today, four years early.
Nike is holding a special event tonight in LA and has sent out elaborate invites to members of the press like NiceKicks. Additionally a video uploaded by Doc Emmett appeared showing shelves of 2011 Nike MAG shoes. Watch the Nike Air Mag teaser video below.
Nike has actually filed a patent last year for self lacing shoes. The big question is though if fans of the Back to the Future movies are no not too old to wear these sneakers? I hope you have kids. We will keep updating you on what could be the release of the most geeky shoe of the century.
