Great Scott!! If you thought Nike couldn’t get any more innovative… think again!
Look familiar? They are the famous Back to the Future Shoes as seen in the movies. In honor of the day Marty jumps into the future, October 21st 2015, Nike has created the Nike Mags to actually work with power laces. When you slip on the shoe the power laces adjust to your size with comfort and style. As of now the shoe is limited addition and one of a kind. It is unknown if it will ever be available to the public. However, these shoes will be auctioned off sometime next year to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Considering Michael J. Fox, who played Marty McFly in the Back to the Future Trilogy has Parkinson’s disease himself, it is a fitting cause.
Nike calls these shoes the Nike Mags which are believed to be the first of many “smart shoes” that Nike has in its future. Who new that the creative ideas of a movie could actually pioneer a new kind of shoe? This could potentially alter the way we wear clothes.
