Marty McFly’s Future Shoes Are Here? Great Scott!

Nike is about to announce tonight a new line of shoes that many believe will be a take of Marty McFly’s self-lacing high tops from Back to the Future, Part II. Called the Air Mag, these shoes will utilize a Nike patented technology that will reportedly allow the shoes to lace themselves. A press conference at 8:30 pm Pacific Time by Nike will unveil more details. There’s already a viral video commercial online promoting these line of shoes that resemble McFly’s muy cool shoes from that film.

This is the best news I’ve heard all day, and was actually wondering about this recently when I went shoe shopping. The next thing you know a company will announce the sale of that nifty self-size adjusting jacket he wore complete with drying mode! Better yet where are the flying DeLoreans?

UPDATE: According to Nike, the shoes, while a replica of Marty’s shoes, don’t self-lace but they do light up as shown in the film. Too bad. They still look snazzy. 1,500 pairs will be auctioned off on eBay until September 18th, with net proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Regardless of the selling price, it’s for a good cause and who knows? It could take off and there are only four years left to develop the self-lacing feature. 😀
