They’re finally here, folks. After decades of waiting, those self-lacing Nike Mags first seen in « Back to the Future: Part II » are a reality. Naturally, one of the first people to try them on was Marty McFly himself, Michael J. Fox.
Check out the man modeling the self-tightening sneaks in the video below. There isn’t really a close-up of the laces in action, but you can hear them doing their thing and see Fox’s quick review.

Fox received the shoes along with a letter from Tinker Hatfield, who designed the original prop shoe for the movie and has since designed several popular models for Nike andsoon.
Fox also tweeted a photo of the letter, which says the shoemaker also plans to make a limited number of the self-lacing Mags to be used in fundraisers for replica swiss watches the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The foundation is devoted to fighting Parkinson’s disease, which Fox himself has.
To get a better look at the shoes from the future, er…present, you may want to check out Jimmy Kimmel tonight, where Fox is scheduled to be a guest.
