NiceKicks website has noticed that Nike has filed patent papers for a shoe with an automatic lacing system, similar to the Nike Air Mag from the "Back to the Future" sequel.


Look below to see Nike's shoe design and how Marty (Michael J. Fox) used the shoes in the movie.

I guess it will come in handy for this upcoming generation, who never learned to tie their shoes because they've been wearing tennis shoes with velcro, instead.

Or when they do wear shoes with laces they leave them untied - and then they wonder why the come off. :rolleyes:

You're just not cool enough to ware them. Next step will be to plug them into the computer and analyze your day . . . how many miles you walked - etc . . .
