Back in 2011, the Nike Air Mag, the shoes that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II, were released to a ravenous fan base. There was only one problem, unlike the shoes seen in the movie, Nike’s Air Mags didn’t have power laces. Nike promised they would come 2015, and today the company delivered.
The new Nike Air Mags look almost exactly the same as the shoes Nike released back in 2011, but it’s always what’s on the inside that counts, and this time around there’s now a hidden powered mechanism that automatically cinches the sneaker’s laces tight once you’ve inserted your feet. There’s apparently a manual option too, for when the batteries run down, but that doesn’t seem very futuristic.
