That's Right the Marty McFly Selk-Lacing Sneaker is Now Real!

Nike, a while back, filed for a patent on a self-lacing sneaker. This got sneaker blogs all up in arms, yes there are sneaker blogs just go with it, with excitement over a possible Back to the Future Marty Mcfly self-lacing shoe from Nike. This would be the real thing not some fan mockup or imitation, but an actual self-lacing Nike shoe.

Well the rumors were true and Nike has actually announced that they will be making 1500 self-lacing shoes called the Nike Air Mag. The Mcfly self-lacing Nike shoe is real at least and will be auctioned off on Ebay with the proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, which is aimed at finding a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.

Though it's very cool that these shoes will be made and sold at auction it's too bad they are limited and will probably be sold at outrageous prices on Ebay. So sadly I will not be getting a paid of Marty Mcfly sneakers but hey it's cool to know that they are out there.
