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.

nike air mag 03 Nike Air Mag / Marty McFlys Sneakers Finally Releasing

In 1989, Back To The Future II was released – a sequel to the iconic original that concluded its story with Marty McFly and Doc Brown returning to an alternate life in present day 1985. In contrast with the original film, Back The The Future II focused on moving forward in time – October 21st, 2015 to be exact – when Marty must save his future children. In this futuristic world, Marty encounters some new and improved gadgets, like the hovering skateboard and the Nike Mag – a state of the art Nike sneaker that featured a hands-free self-lacing system. The Nike Mag is considered to be one of the most memorable figments of the entire Back The The Future saga and continues to maintain its significance in Nike archives despite it not even being a real shoe! Well, things are about to change…

The Nike Mag has continually been a ‘tease’ for devotees of the Swoosh and of the popular film trilogy, with sneakers like the Nike Hyperdunk and Nike Hyperdunk 2010 being released in ‘McFly’ form. More recently, Nike 6.0 released a ‘Delorean’ edition of the Dunk SE, which featured a one-piece upper in tonal metallic silver, set to mimic the famous Delorean time machine. Well enough beating around the bush: the Nike Air Mag, Marty McFly’s sneakers from BTTF II, will finally release this year, and apparently Doc Brown traveled forward in time and created a YouTube account to give us a look into a private room with shelves packed with thousands of pairs of the Mag. Continue reading for the video as well as some stills and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for what is one of the most exciting sneaker releases in history.
