It’s finally here! Sort of. After months of speculation, Nike has announced (a day after Back to the Future day) that the self-lacing shoes are becoming a reality! The actual Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) shoes are coming in spring 2016, according to Nike.
A word of warning, the self-lacing technology is still in its infancy and may have a few issues here and there. Also the shoes do not clean themselves (yet). While the future didn’t play out exactly the way Back to the Future predicted (it was pretty close), we’re excited on what the next best thing might be.
No word yet on prices but as for availability the shoes will be auctioned next year all for a good cause to raise funds and awareness for Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. Check out the video below to see Marty McFly’s try on the new shoes for the first time or stay tuned and watch the Jimmy Kimmel Live where he is slated to make an appearance.
