Nike Teases with Air Mag: Back to the Future Shoes to Become Reality?

 |  |  |  |  September 8, 2011


How much would you pay for a pair of Nike Air Mags, aka the Marty McFly shoes in Back to the Future II? I don’t know, but since Nike also patented power laces (laces that will tighten themselves), I’m expecting something big in the coming weeks on the sneaker front.

This teaser video was released on YouTube by DocEmmettBrown88 and in it you can see Marty’s closet filled up to the brim with Air Mags.

For one, the blinking lights are easy as pie, thanks to LED technology, but I don’t know what else these shoes will actually do. Are they the ultimate sneakers in geek nerdom, or simply a novelty item. I hope that Nike won’t price them too high. We’ll see what’s up when they are released.
