Nike Is Auctioning Off Actual Self-Tying Shoes From Back To The Future
Yes, these are real.
This story is proof that dreams really do come true. A few years back Nike release the shoes from Back 2 the Future and while they were awesome, they didn't have a self-tying mechanism which was pretty much the whole point of the shoe.
But in honor of Back to the Future day, Nike finally got off their asses and decided to give the people what they want. Actual self-tying Nike Mags.
Nike sent a note to Fox that read: “We wanted you to be the first to receive a pair… In addition to your personal pair, we’re creating more pairs for support in aid of the Foundation in 2016.”
That means you'll soon be able to buy your very own pair. No word on when the shoes will be auctioned off.
Check out this tweet from the Michael J. Fox foundation where you can see Marty McFly himself trying them on.
In the words of Doc Brown: "You're gonna see some serious shit"
