Nike Releases Back to the Future Themed Self-Lacing Sneakers
For Back To The Future fans who remember when Marty McFly traveled to the future and had self-lacing shoes, now here is your chance to get your own! ESPN's Darren Rovell reports that Nike has announced the first pairs of self-lacing MAG shoes from "Back to the Future II" will be made available this month to the public.
But you will not be able to buy self-lacing shoes until November. Why?
Because Nike is making 89 pairs available through an online drawing with $10 entries for raffle drawing with proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to fight for a cure to Parkinson's disease.
Rovell reports there are 89 available because Back To The Future 2 movie was released in 1989. Three additional pairs will be auctioned off in Hong Kong, London and New York over the next several weeks.
According to ESPN's Rovell, the HyperAdapt 1.0, which features technology to have laces wrap around a foot to give it that perfectly snug feel, will be sold starting in November.
