No, we aren’t playing with your feelings. While 2015 has failed to give us the hoverboard (instead, we have to content with glorified Segway derivatives, the wheeled ‘hoverboard’), Nike announced early this morning that it had been working on making the iconic Back to the Future self-lacing Air Mags a reality for fans and sneakerheads everywhere — with a little twist to it, of course. The footwear brand delivered the first pair to the person responsible for its popularity, Michael J. Fox, who then wore it to his interview with Jimmy Kimmel where he demonstrated how the shoe works. Not-so spoiler alert; the shoe laces tightened itself! Yes, just like in the movie.
Watch the video below and fangirl/boy:
“Power laces? Alright!”

The Nike Mag will be available in Spring 2016 and will be sold in limited quantities via auction only. All proceeds will be donated to Michael J. Fox’s foundation for Parkinson’s Research. For more information, click here.
