Back to the Future Sneakers… from Nike

Nike is creating and patenting what looks to be sneakers with an automatic lacing system that will look exactly like the Nike Air Mag in Back to the Future II

It is said that it might be just a novelty item released alongside the Blu-Ray release for the Back to the Future Trilogy. 

Here’s a summary from Nike and the link to check it out: http://www.wipo.int/pctdb/en/wo.jsp?WO=2009134858&IA=US2009042072&DISPLAY=STATUS

“An article of footwear with an automatic lacing system is disclosed. The automatic lacing system provides a set of straps that can be automatically opened and closed to switch between a loosened and tightened position of the upper. The article further includes an automatic ankle cinching system that is configured to automatically adjust an ankle portion of the upper.”
