Nike Inc (NKE) is going to release self-tying shoes from “Back To The Future” in 2015

Posted Feb 18, 2014

In 2011, Nike Inc (NYSE:NKE) released a limited version of the Nike Air Mag shoe that was featured in Back to the Future II. Although the shoes were identical to the ones that Marty McFly wore, it did not have self-tying power laces.


Nike designer Tinker Hatfield has been wanting to put together the same shoes that have laces that can tie themselves and it will be happening soon. Coincidentally these shoes will be arriving in the same year that McFly and Doc Brown visited in the movie.

Nike filed a patent for a shoe that has an automatic lacing system two years before the Air Mag was launched.
