You remember Marty McFly’s self-lacing shoe from Back To The Future 2? Dubbed the Air MAG, the shoes were specially crafted for the film by legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield, but of course, the auto-lacing tech was pure fiction. 1,500 pair of Air MAGs were auctioned off in 2011 raising more than $4.7 million, but you have to tie ’em the old fashioned way.
And, now, Tinker confirmed that his team is working as hard as possible to deliver the Nike MAG in 2015 with Power Laces, but also reminded us all that we still have “11 and two-thirds months left in 2015″.
However, it’s nice to know the project is still under way and hasn’t been swept off into the land of forgotten sneaker innovations.
