UPDATE: Those self-lacing sneakers from Back to the Future Part II are finally a reality?

09.08.2011by:

UPDATE - Nike officially announced the Nike Air Mag today with a just launched commercial for the BACK TO THE FUTURE kicks. The bad part? They don't actually self-lace. The sneakers feature rechargeable LED lights and are billed as an "exact replica" of the ones in the movie, but don't feature any futuristic technology. The sneakers will be limited to 1,500 in quantity and will be available for bidding on eBay, with all proceeds benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Bidding begins tonight at 11:30pm EST.

*******

The years haven't quite caught up to the world of BACK TO THE FUTURE PART II, but one of that movie's famous items is becoming available to you before 2015. Great Scott!

Those nifty auto-lacing Nike Air Mags that Marty McFly sports during his trip to futuristic Hill Valley will apparently be on your local shelves soon, no vehicular chrono-jumps required. The shoe company filed a patent for the design last year, and now it would appear they have made it through production and are nearly ready for all you McFlys.

No word on the development of the auto-drying jacket or the coveted Hoverboard.

Extra Tidbit: One of Griff's Hoverboard gang was played by Jason Scott Lee, best known for portraying Bruce Lee in DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY.

A Good Cause

It's for charity guys, chill a bit.
Nike will probably release an affordable pair in 2015 with the power laces.
as for the not so fine print @ [link]!shoe
"They feature an electroluminescent outsole, space-age materials and a rechargeable internal battery good for 3,000 hours."

so ur not so S.O.L

MAJOR RIP OFF...read the fine print

1) The shoes do NOT have power laces. They will not be available until 2015.
2) The battery only lasts for 3000 hours (when not being used) that is only 125 days..then you are S.O.L.
3) "...... The 2011 NIKE MAG shoes are not designed or intended for normal wear and use as footwear."
RIP...OFF!!!!!!

One of the predictions from BTTF 2 that is yet to come true is Michael J Fox aging.

Why thank you my good sir. Sometimes I like getting the schmoes riled up. As long as it's in good fun and politically correct and not about something racial or biased. I may have exaggerated. I may have gone in my delorean 4 years ago with Doc Brown to the future and seen these. Or I may have just seen them a while back (more so 1 or 2 years ago give or take rather than 4) so it's kind of a bit of old news. But guys lighten up. It's all love on my part. Lets try to get the negs to 300.
