Nike MAG Will Leave Your Feet Tongue Tied

Shoes that lace themselves. Let that sink in.


“Back To The Future” is now right in the present with the actualisation of this Nike masterpiece of an innovation; the Nike MAG. Marty McFly fans and the sneakerhead community alike have been waiting for the introduction of these ground-breaking, ankle-shaking sneakers since their first appearance in the 1989 epic, “Back To The Future 2”. But fantasy has now become fact. Science fiction is now non-fiction.

“Power laces” are a reality that Nike CEO Mark Parker hopes to bring to other kicks in the future. I for one am excited about this development and to see them in a whole range of footwear would be a HUGE game changing leap for Nike. No doubt that if power laces aid shoe performance well, Nike will have even greater superiority over market rivals adidas.

Take a look at the videos below and let me know what you think, can sneakers get any better than this!? Beware though, they may cost a bit of dollar when they finally release in the spring of 2016. The early version of the Nike MAG released in 2011, with average sales nipping around the $8,100 mark. All proceeds of both the former and future releases go to a grand cause though – The Michael J. Fox Foundation, for Parkinson’s research.
