Remember how a little while back, Nike finally released its Back to the Future-inspired Nike MAG sneakers. Sure, it was for a good cause, but you’re probably not wearing a pair unless you had had a few thousand dollars to spare.
Well, I was pretty excited earlier when I read all about the new Nike Air MAGs, the Marty McFly sneakers from Back to the Future II, but now that Nike has revealed the full details about the Air MAGs, I’m sad to report that they won’t feature functional power-laces.
Remember those awesome kicks from Back to the Future Part II? You know, the ones that laced themselves up automatically? After seeing this DIY hack, it’s impressive that Nike has actually been working on a design for these shoes.
The DIY hack had the motor hanging off the back, which wasn’t pretty.
