Here’s a piece of Sneaker News that’s as shocking as 1.21 gigawatts!  We showed you an auto-lacing Nike ACG Baltoro back in July, and while the sneaker/boot did just what its name would suggest, the bulky servo motor attached to the heel was not so aesthetically pleasing.  Creator Brett Brefin was inspired by Marty McFly’s Nike Mag from Back to the Future II, and he built the lacing motor because Nike had to that point only done McFly 2015 colorways, never the actual shoes.  But that might change if this patent application from Tinker Hatfield and company gets approved.  With drawings that detail a rechargeable lacing system where the kicks are juiced up in a special dock, we’re left to wonder about the possibility of something that just yesterday seemed unthinkable.  And whether the Nike Mags hit in 2015 or anytime between now and then, stick with Sneaker News for updates. via Dime.
