The Nike MAG is back for all those that missed the initial train. The Back to the Future 2 styled shoes are being re-released with a major improvement. In the movie the shoes were of the self-lacing variety, which was the innovation that Nike couldn't replicate. This time around though, Nike is looking to bring that future innovation to the masses.
In the scene where Marty McFly puts the shoes on we see the laces tighten and grip to his foot, so if this innovation sees the light of day, be prepared for one of the most comfortable shoes of all time. The shoes are high tops and feature a blue light up bottom and strap logo to round out the futuristic look of the shoe. In addition to all this futuristic fanfare, the Nike MAG's are looking at a 2015 release date, the same date he strapped them on in the movie.
