A Look At The Nike Air Mag Technology

nike patent mcfly self zip 05 A Look At The Nike Air Mag Technology

It’s funny how futuristic visions from the past managed to inspire the public, and yet, have missed the mark wholesale. Take for instance Stanley Kubrick’s epic 2001: A Space Odyssey, which has a manned crew depart for Jupiter exactly nine years ago tomorrow. We haven’t even made good on Dubya’s goal of putting a man on Mars yet and there’s only a single electric car available today, much less a flying one, yet some details from the earlier imagined future have indeed come to fruition.

In the case of the Nike Air Mag, a 2011 or 2012 release puts them years ahead of the 2015 setting for Back to the Future Part II, and now that Marty McFly’s sneakers have been confirmed as an upcoming release, let’s examine the key technology that sets them apart from all other kicks we’ve ever seen. News of Nike’s application for an automatic lacing system patent broke last August, and from the heavily annotated drawings, we can surmise that strapping these babies on will be as simple as pressing a button on the lateral heel until the desired fit is achieved. The only announcement that could relegate Air Yeezy 2 hype to the background, the Nike Air Mag will be one of the biggest releases the sneakerhead world has ever seen, so click through to see what’s in store and stick with Sneaker News for the Nike Air Mag release date.
