Back To The Future

If you didn’t know, Wednesday, October 21st was back to the future day. 30 years ago there is a trilogy called Back to the Future. If you are unfamiliar with the movie, in the movie they want to go back to the date 21 October 2015. The film's protagonist are Marty Mcfly and Doctor Brown. In the city of Hill Valley California, people have been excited to save Mcfly’s yet to be born children.

Wouldn’t be cool if your shoes could tie itself? These shoes can even light up! Like the ones in the movie , they have battery wires hanging down the leg. But these are better, don’t  worry about tripping over electrical wires, the battery is built in.

This actually is the second time  for Tinker Hatfield, the Nike designer to try to create a real life version of the iconic sneakers. The 2011 version has every detail and it looks just like Marty Mcfly. But the only thing,  it didn’t have the self-lacing mechanism.

This time the company has found a technology which automatically tighten the lace when it senses your foot, It can tighten around the foot and around the ankle. There's also a manual which can loosen or tighten grip if needed.

Since these shoes are inspired by Marty Mcfly’s shoes, it fits to give the first pair of Nike Mags for Michael J.Fox the actor who played Marty Mcfly.  Nike plans to release additional pairs in 2016. But they will only be a limited edition and they only sell them through auction. All the money will go to Michael J. Fox Foundation which is Parkinson research will benefit from the sale. That's good news but it means it will be expensive for us. What an great invention. I would love to have a pair of Nike Mags. Would you?
Pleases comment down below, would you like a pair of Nike Mags? I would love to hear your thoughts.
