'Back to The Future': Product Predictions


After decades of anticipation, Nike's self-lacing sneakers are upon us -- exactly when 'Back to the Future' told us they'd be.

For the first time ever, the Nike Mags with self-lacing technology are a real thing. According to a few sources on Twitter, pairs have been spotted across New York City.

The Mags have been released before, though without the futuristic lacing technology. Even with plain, old manually-tied laces, they're arguably the hottest collector's item in the sneaker industry, with pairs selling for thousands of dollars.

Nike first hinted at an unveiling on Tuesday, tweeting at Michael J. Fox.



We'll be sure to keep you updated with more updates as they come, so stay with us for more photos and news.

UPDATE: The sneakers will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to charity. Michael J. Fox tweeted a letter received from Nike designer Tinker Hatfield, detailing a 2016 release, benefitting Fox's foundation for Parkinson's Disease. So, sneakerheads who want a hard-to-find collector's piece while helping out a great cause: Start saving up some cash.
