Nike To Release Marty McFly Shoes From Back To The Future
Over a year ago we reported about the first inklings of the potential inception of this sneaker. It came in the form of an automatic lacing system that the boys in Beaverton, Oregon at the Nike design kitchen had filed for. The schematic was eerily familiar to the Nike Air Mag, better known as Marty McFly‘s kicks in Back To The Future II. This has been one of the most hyped and rumored sneakers of all time, with sneaker spirits soaring every-time a new possibility is presented and crashing every time there is a copyright issue with Universal Pictures.
It gives me great pleasure to allow spirits to soar again, because the Nike Air Mag aka the Marty McFly is not only a real shoe, but the release of the iconic kick will see the light of day. The good folks over at Nike realize this is a monumental occasion, and created a Doc Brown YouTube account to break the news. The kicks look true to form from the movie with light up logos and what one would presume is a self-lacing system. There is no solid release date yet, but enthusiasts can revel in the fact that these have been produced and will see the light of day. Stay tuned.
