Tech: The Future From Back To The Future Just Got A Little Closer

You remember when you were eight or nine, leaving the cinema having seen Back To The Future II, and more than anything you wanted a hoverboard like Marty McFly? Yeah, well, it’s not that. It’s the next best thing.

Nike Air Mags, my friend. No longer will we have to deal with inconvenience of tying shoelaces. I expect to see a lot of thirtysomethings wearing these very soon… Yes, that includes me (And you, BunchOfSteve?)

UPDATE: The trainers are indeed being produced, but in a very limited quantity. 1500, in fact. Nike plan to auction them off on eBay, 150 pairs a day, and the money raised from the sale will go to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Nike say they will match the amount raised too. Pretty cool, huh?

  1. I’m gonna wait until one of these goes haywire and crushes some kids ankles into wet powder, then exclaim “That’s why I didn’t buy a pair!”
