Nike Self-Lacing Sneakers “Back To The Future 2” – Nike Air MAG

by ChinaBambi

Continuing on from my Back To The Future II 2015 blog.. Nike WILL make Marty McFly’s hi-tech kicks!

Marty got a pair of the self-lacing high-tops on a trip to the future, all the way to the year 2015.

Now that it’s actually 2015, Nike is turning the fictional footwear into a reality.. ready for Marty’s visit in Oct!

With the help of designer Tinker Hatfield, these patented sneakers are set to hit the market sometime this year.

Here are a few diagrams from the patent papers:

Though the details of the mechanics involved is a bit fuzzy, the shoes (being called Nike Air MAG) promise to include auto-lacing functions with their “power laces.”

As for the 2015 version of the Nike Air MAG, they will include the self-lacing function, but there is yet to be a release date. If I had my guess, though, I’d say… October 21, 2015 at 4:29PM sounds like a reasonable date and time 😀
