Nike Files Patent For Automatic Lacing System - Nike Air Mag "Marty McFly" Back II The Future Kicks On The Way?! (SICK)

This is awesome news!  The patent for the auto lacing system is almost a guarantee that Nike is going to at least try and make the Nike Air Mag "Marty McFly" shoes from Back II The Future 2. 

Sneakerheads have been trying to get Nike to make these for years and we've been teased with a few joints like the Nike Hyperdunk and Hypermax "McFly" editions.


Back II The Future 2 takes place in 2015 so it seems like the timing is right for this patent.  This gives them right around 5 years to perfect the shoe and bring it to market.  I can't see them making more than a few hundred of these since they are probably cost prohibitive but the demand is going to be insane. 

Most people will keep these in their closet as a collector's edition or sell them on eBay for a ridiculous mark up.  I can't imagine many people wearing them in public but you never know.  Styles could change quite a bit in the next 5 years.  Maybe Back II The Future will end up being more accurate with the predictions than we thought.  Hopefully they will have flying cars by then too.

Here's a look at the patent info that's been filed by Nike.  These look sick!
