Marty McFly had predicted he would have his own self-tying Nike shoes. And Nike it seems is nothing if not obliging to it. Just in time for Back To The Future Day, October 21, 1015, Nike’s self-lacing shoes are officially here. We’ve been waiting since the release of the movie for those fascinating sneakers. But those people too lazy to tie their own shoes, shouldn’t feel excited yet. The special edition Nike Air Auto Lace will not be available in stores.The shoes will be auctioned off, and the beneficiary once again will be the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
When Marty McFly and Emmett “Doc” Brown first appeared on screen in 1985’s “Back to the Future“, the duo won over legions of fans with their time-traveling adventures. But those did not have “power laces” that automatically tighten the shoe’s grip on your foot like what was portrayed in the movie. These newer Air Mags will surely cost a hefty amount. I suggest you start saving now to be able to get your hands on a pair of those bad boys. The non-self-lacing Mags are among the most collectible sneakers in history with prices estimated averaging nearly $6,000.
Now in the real 2015, we may not have invented the hover board just yet, but today Nike is bringing one of the technologies shown off in the film into reality: self-lacing shoes. It has been the most talked about item recently and also had so many people rallied up for the release in spring.
